Crater Lake Loop

Crater Lake Rim offers an epic 33 mile road bike ride by any measure but this version starts in Fort Klamath at 4,200’ elevation offering a more challenging ride of 71 miles and 6,400’ of climbing. The ride starts with an easy 6 miles to the park boundary then the road tilts up gaining 2,800’ over the next 16.5 miles through beautiful old growth Ponderosa Pine. After 22 miles you arrive at Rim Village at 7,100’ where you can fuel up and take in the views. Ride clock-wise around the rim for the next 30 miles before starting a much deserved 13-mile descent to the flatlands. Enjoy the views and bring water and sunscreen. Have fun!

Spotlighting Klamath Falls’ Burgeoning Craft Beer Scene

Ty Kliewer, co-owner at Skyline Brewing Company in Klamath Falls, remembers feeling unsure about how his nascent brewery—the city’s third—would be received when it launched in May 2018. When he got the last of his licenses approved before opening, Kliewer had all of two accounts lined up to sell Skyline’s ales around town. Weeks after opening, he poured beer at the city’s Basin Brew & Q event, finagling a spot at the festival even after organizers had stopped accepting new entries. Going into the event,
