Gold Hill is a small city in Southern Oregon that is most famously known for its popular roadside attraction, the Oregon Vortex. Native Americans knew the Vortex, an area of strange angles and optical illusions, as “The Forbidden Ground,” because animals would refuse to go there. Located on the banks of the Rogue River, the city of Gold Hill also is well known for its river rafting and mining-town heritage.
