OC&E - Klamath Falls to Bly

OC&E Woods Line State Trail is Oregon’s longest linear park. This 100-mile trail is built on the old railbed of the Oregon, California and Eastern Railroad. The trail is open to all non-motorized recreation, beginning in the heart of Klamath Falls and extending east to Bly and further north to the Sycan Marsh. The first 7.1 miles are paved; the remaining 88 miles of trail are less improved but still a great ride. Beautiful scenery abounds, with majestic Mt. Shasta rising to the south, plus farmland, juniper, sagebrush and timberlands, with highlights including Lost River and Merritt Creek Trestle. At mile 49 the route splits and you can either head east to Bly (14 more miles) or take a left and head north to the Silver Lake area (33 more miles).

For decades, the Klamath Basin was known more for its mining, logging, and rail operations than its rich natural beauty. But as new rules, technological advances, and environmental protections curtailed those historic industries, a new, outdoors-focused culture arose in their wake. Today, outdoor adventurers are getting wise to the secrets that lie in southern Oregon’s Cascade foothills. Bird-watchers gather every winter to watch hundreds of thousands of migrating waterfowl, cyclists and hikers peruse paths that once served logging outfits, and the spectacular Crater Lake National

An Insider’s Guide to Moore Mountain

Situated along the in-skirts of town, a mere skip-and-a-jump across the Link River from downtown Klamath Falls, Moore Mountain is a humble yet hugely charismatic outdoor destination buzzing with recreational opportunities. At 458 acres, it’s not the largest park in the area. And with about 28-miles of trails, it might not garner as many headlines as some of the other major destinations in Klamath County (like Crater Lake, Lava Beds National Monument, or the Klamath Marsh National Wildlife Refuge). But what Moore Mountain might lack

Everything You Should Know About Caving at Lava Beds National Monument

Only about 30 miles south of Klamath Falls, Northern California’s Lava Beds National Monument surely ranks among the hidden gems of the U.S. National Park System. Encompassing part of the northern shoulder of the mighty Medicine Lake Volcano—more voluminous than any Cascadian fire mountain—the monument is perhaps best known for its historical and cultural significance with regard to the native Modoc people, and for its proliferation of lava-tube caves. In fact, no other corner of the continental U.S. boasts as many such cave features as
