Trail is a small town with big natural scenery, including Lost Creek Lake, the Lost Creek Dam complex, the Spirit of the Rogue Nature Center, and the Cole M Rivers Fish Hatchery, the largest hatchery in Oregon, which annually rears 3.7 million spring Chinook, coho, steelhead and rainbow trout, and plants them in the Rogue River.

The Hatchery is open to the public, though you'll have to leave your fishing rod in the car.

The Lost Creek Lake area is noted for its bass and troutfishing and includes waterskiing, wind-surfing, scuba diving, kayaking wildflower viewing, hiking, biking, picnicing and swimming.
