Spence Mountain Trail Project
After almost two years of planning, it is exciting to see a new trail system spring to life at Spence Mountain!
Crews from Dirt Mechanics, a trail building contractor from Bend, started machine building trails the week of Oct. 13th. The goal: Complete three miles of trail from the Howard Bay Trail Head to the top of the east ridge of Spence in the next few weeks.
In addition to machine built trail, more than 30 folks from IMBA’s Trail Building School enthusiastically broke ground and cut the first quarter mile of trail on Oct. 25th. It is great to see so many people donate an entire Saturday to help grow Klamath’s trail network.
So where are we going to park? Good question.
Thanks to Oregon Department of Forestry, KTA has permission to use ODF property located off Hwy. 140 near the bottom of the Doak Mountain hill to construct our new trailhead. You may have seen some recent activity as ODF has been thinning timber in order to provide a clearing for the new parking lot.
Want to put your mark on the trail? Come to November's trail maintenance day on Saturday, this month at Spence Mountain. Click here for more information.
