View Up the Rogue at Rock Point

Rock Point was a favorite ambush site of the Rogue River Tribes from the earliest years of Euro-American exploration in the 1830s-40s (including the Wilkes Expedition). Miners, pack trains and early settlers traveling the old Oregon-California Trail (later part of the Applegate Trail) had to pass between the river and a steep hillside on the right that pressed in close to the bank, making them vulnerable to attack. The spur of that hill was carved away when Interstate 5 was built.
