Trail News & Information

 

Spence Mountain Trail Project

It may be a little easier to find your way around the Spence Mountain trail system. 
Last month the Klamath Trails Alliance added signs to point hikers, walkers, runners, and mountain bikers in the right direction.
Go check out the trail and see if you can find them all!

Ken Hay donation

Ken Hay, the former superintendent of city parks, is a friend of all who enjoy recreation in Klamath Falls.
Among many other projects, Ken was a key player in getting the Klamath Ridge View Trail built and helped acquire a permanent easement through Ridgewater and the Buck Ridge developments. Ken spent a good part of his time attending many of the non-profit meetings around town.
Ken needs our help. He is undergoing rehabilitation following the removal of a brain tumor. According to John Bellon, current parks superintendent, Ken is holding up well and making gradual improvement. But Ken's insurance will pay for only a small part of his essential rehab work.
We, the KTA, are asking the community to help Ken and his wife in their time of need. Account number 21778 has been established at the Klamath Employees Federal Credit Union for Ken's medical expense relief. The Hays address is 3737 Shasta Way, Klamath Falls, OR, 97603. Walk-ins are welcome. 
Even if you don't know Ken, you have benefited from his tireless efforts in our community. Please join in Klamath's rich history of helping our own in their time of need.

Moore Mountain runs and Klamath Trail Fest 

Join the Linkville Lopers Running and Walking Club and Asana Yoga and Sole for the Klamath Trail Fest on Sept. 26 and 27.
This two-day trail running festival will feature shoes demos 
– with Hoka, Salomon and La Sportiva – the Trails in Motion Film Festival – which showcases imaginative and awe-inspiring trail running productions from around the world – and the Moore Mountain half marathon and 5K in Moore Park.
We'll have beer from Base Camp Brewing and New York style pizza from Rodeos Pizza and Saladaria.
The Moore Mountain runs are Klamath County's premiere trail running event, boasting one of the best half-marathon trail courses in the Pacific Northwest. More than 80 percent of the course is on high quality single track trail and includes sweeping views of Upper Klamath Lake and Mount Shasta. The 5K is fun and technically challenging with minimal elevation gain.
