Grants Pass and Vicinity

Grants Pass is one of the larger towns in southern Oregon and the seat for Josephine County. Located in the Rogue River Valley near the intersection of Interstate 5 and the Rogue River, it is a popular playground for outdoor enthusiasts, especially those who enjoy boating, kayaking and white-water rafting. Like many inland areas, Grants Pass is sheltered from extreme weather conditions by the Klamath Range Mountains to the west which separates it from the coast. As a result, the city and surrounding areas benefit from mild winters and warm summers.
