Day Hike near Klamath Falls

Return to Message Board

My girlfriend and I will be travelling to Oregon next week.  We've got a free day in Klamath Falls are looking for a good day hike in the area.  We are from Atlanta and are accustomed to hiking and backpacking in the North Georgia mountains (AT trail, Cohutta Wilderness, Chatooga River, etc.).  Any recommendations of a good day hike near Klamath Falls would be greatly appreciated, as well as any tips for day hiking in southern Oregon (special gear, weather considerations, wildlife considerations).  Thanks in advance.

If you haven't been to the area before, you might think about driving up to Crater Lake & doing a day hike up there.  It's a bit out of the way, but it's one of the "must-see" areas in the state.

I've also heard really good things about the Mt. McLoughlin Trail (8.5 miles, 4000' elevation).  It's supposed to be beautiful, but I haven't done it yet.
