Glide

Glide is located 18 miles east of Roseburg and Idleyld Park is 21 miles east of Roseburg. Both towns are home to many natural wonders including the Colliding Rivers where the deep waters of the North Umpqua River funnel into a water chute and meet the rapids of sparkling Little River head-on. Continue your scenic tour following Highway #138 to Crater Lake through some of the most spectacularly beautiful country in the Land of Umpqua, home to the North and South Umpqua Rivers and numerous waterfalls (approximately 25) throughout the lush Umpqua National Forest.
 
Rogue-Umpqua National Scenic Byway
Glide is part of the 172 mile National Scenic Byway from Roseburg along the North Umpqua River, past waterfalls, parks and recreation sites, to Diamond Lake, Crater Lake and then south along the Rogue River to Gold Hill.
 
What does "Umpqua" mean? "Thundering waters" or "across the waters" are two popular translations for this surviving word of the Umpqua language. Another definition is "satisfied" - as in a full stomach.
 
Ancestors of the Umpqua, Southern Molalla, Yoncalla, and Cow Creek Band of Umpqua Tribe of Indians lived here before Mt. Mazama erupted forming Crater Lake nearly 7,000 years ago. The Indians were moved to reservations in 1856. As Europeans bought reservation lands, the tribes further fragmented to become farmers and ranchers in the Umpqua Valley.

At Colliding Rivers Viewpoint, the swift, deep waters of the North Umpqua River funnel into a water chute and meet the rapids of sparkling Little River head-on. The viewpoint includes a newly constructed rest area and comfort station, plus several interpretive panels about the area. Located just off Highway #138 at Glide, 18 miles east of Roseburg and across the street from Colliding Rivers Visitors Center
