“A historical landmark viewpoint of the entire city of Roseburg, Oregon.”
— Ashley Hicks
Please use extreme caution in wet and stormy conditions. Pack it in, pack it out. No camping, no facilities.
Mt. Nebo is a difficult singletrack trail and the only one of it's kind in the city of Roseburg, Oregon. The trail is visible from Military Road. The trailhead starts at the cross street stop sign at the corner of Military Street and Myrtle Street.
It's very steep the first 1/8 of a mile then switchbacks along the northwestern side of Mt. Nebo. Along the trail, expect plenty of poison oak throughout late summer months. Exceptional views of the historic "soldiers home", the veterans administration buildings, the airport, and the entire downtown and surrounding mountain ranges.
Once you reach the top of the mountain, follow the grassy hillside to the flag (maintained by the Elks Club) and cross (maintained by the Lions Club). It's important at this point to note the entire area is AT YOUR OWN RISK; the grass is slippery around the end of the cliff and extreme caution should be taken.
Please keep dogs on leash or under voice command only. The entire property along Military Street is privately owned, so please return on the same trail point you came up.
This steep option has incredible views. Take water, snacks, and your camera.
