The Rogue River Nature Trail, a newly-finished boardwalk trail along the banks of the Rogue River, begins in Peppler Park on the west bank of the river at the Rockford Dam. In all, the park encompasses 4.5 acres, and the new boardwalk winds a quarter-mile north along the river bank, offering scenic views of wooded areas, the Rogue River, and downtown Rockford. The boardwalk is constructed on helical piers along the river embankment. The use of helical piers allowed THE KING CO. INC. to minimize the disturbance of vegetation and limit tree removal to preserve the surrounding forest.
