Hagelstein Out and Back

Got a taste for adventure and an afternoon to spare? This 2.5-3hr ride is right out of downtown Klamath Falls, and promises several climbs 1-2 miles long with short but steep pitches, fun descents and sweet gravel. This near road bike level gravel route is a local favorite and you’ll see why when you reach the turnaround point at the top of Hagelstein Mountain offering some of the most dramatic views in the Klamath Basin. On a clear day you can get a see the peak of Mount Shasta, just across the Oregon-California border. While there are multiple sections of this ride that are pavement and some well-oiled gravel, it is not recommended to bring a road bike (we recommend about 32mm tires for best results). This route can be ridden year-round, depending on snowfall in the winter. Bathrooms are available at Hagelstein Park.

Explore Klamath’s Natural Wonders Along the Volcanic Legacy Scenic Byway

The story of the Klamath region can’t be told without a nod to its volcanic past. Mount Mazama erupted nearly 8,000 years ago, which led to the formation of Crater Lake—and, further south, lava flows dating back almost 70,000 years formed the landscape at the heart of the modern-day Lava Beds National Monument. In between, centuries of lava flows and eruptions left the region pockmarked with pumice plains, cinder cone crags, and other explosive landscapes. Today, it’s easy to see the lasting effects of all
