4. Illinois River Canyon: A gut-wrenching road with the name of Illinois River Road is infested with campsites, beaches, and trails. Thrill to wildflowers including the cobra lily, who'd prefer a little flesh for dinner. Start out in Selma, Oregon. For more information, contact the Wild Rivers Ranger District. Come spring to late summer, says Urness.

And top of the list?
1. Rogue River: Zach's choice of any of the over 200 miles of the river's venues would put you down in the neighborhood of Merlin and Galice. Fishing, river running, or just water splashing appear to be the order of the day. Top of the list for campgrounds? Indian Mary and Almeda County parks.
