I'm always looking for a good place to take a walk for exercise in my area. I actually have knee issues so real hiking is kind of out of the question for me. Even the Roxyann "hike" is too hard for me, because coming down the road is too painful. So, I do the bike path, the Jacksonville cemetary and other Jacksonville woodland paths, Lithia and Bear Creek parks and the North Mountain Nature park (last time I went out there it was great but ended too soon and I had to turn back.). The expo pond area is pretty (but a little dangerous) Sometimes I walk out some of the safer rural roads that have good visibility. I'm just wondering about walks not real hiking, because there are a million of those and like I said, I can't manage them anyway. I stopped doing Table Rock (s) years ago because of my knee issues. I always just wonder if there is some hidden gem out there I don't know about.

Cathedral hills Trails is nice if Grants Pass is not too far.

Cathedral Hills Trails Details Oregon/Washington BLM

While looking for the CH link I found this Recreation Sites Oregon/Washington BLM that has a lot of cool trails. Have fun.

Unfortunatley, as lovely as that sounds, it's not really what I'm looking for. I'm looking for walks that I can take within 5 miles of home. Medford. It's a hard topic to bring up. As soon as you ask where are places for walking at home, people tend to give you a million hiking or wilderness suggestions. Not that that isn't a lovely one, it's just not the question. Great links! Thank you though. Some might be awesome when I'm actually going somewhere and want to get out. I probably should be more clear.

You were clear, I'm just not familiar with Medford. As no one else had chimed in, I thought I'd get the ball rolling so to speak. Good luck.....

Smile Good places to take a walk in Jackson County.

We did a volkswalk in Medford which is a little over 6 miles long and can be done anytime at any pace. it begins at the Food for Less on Biddle Road. It included the Bear Creek Park, East Side Cemetary and the greenway. They have another walk through the historic district and downtown. Both are flat and easy walks you do at your own pace.The walking club 'Rogue Valley Walkers' can provide more information. Their website is Rogue Valley Walkers - walking Southern Oregon
Enjoy your walks

These days I've been doing the J ville cemetery. There are hills but they are brief and allow me to take it easy. I have a harder time descending than ascending.

There are some lovely and fairly level trails along the Rogue River at Touvelle Park in N. Medford.
