January 2021

Exploring winter trails out of the Fourmile Sno-Park or Summit Sno-Park near Lake of the Woods.  

Winter trail experiences 

Mother nature is acting fickle again this year.  In spite of the on again, off again winter weather there is still good snow in our higher elevations.  Lake of the Woods area provides opportunities for all three winter disciplines, snowshoeing, xc skiing and backcountry skiing.  Enclosed are two cross country ski trail maps based out of Fourmile Sno-Park and Pederson Sno-Park. Note, you’ll need to buy a Sno-Park permit at one of our local outdoor stores if you park there.

Brown Mountain is also popular for snowshoeing and backcountry skiing and is located just west of Lake of the Woods.  The best access is the unnamed Sno-Park just past the westside road near Lake of the Woods. Enclosed is a map link to the Sno-Park.  The climb starts around 5,000’ elevation and tops out at 7,344’.  It takes between 1.5 to 2 hours to summit depending on snow conditions.  Views of Mt McLoughlin are plentiful.   


Board Election 

Member votes were tallied and we are pleased to report all votes were affirmative for the proposed slate of board members.  Forty-seven folks voted and elected the following board members: John Bellon, Jeremy Morris, Dennis Taugher, Drew Honzel, JoAnn Clifton and Grant Weidenbach.  Thank you for your confidence in our board!

Spence Fundraiser 

Once again folks really stepped up to support trail development at Spence this year!   Our goal was to raise $14,000 from the community to match two large donations by KTA Board Member, Mark Goodman, and Zach’s Bikes.  Through the second week of January we have exceeded our goal by 27% and raised $17,754!  Combined with Mark and Zach’s donations we’ve raised $31,754 from the community.  This is especially important as several grants never materized last year due to COVID and grant funding was down 35% from 2019.  We truly appreciate everyone’s help.


Fred Meyer's Community Rewards & AmazonSmile Helps KTA!

If you shop at Fred Meyer or Amazon you could be helping KTA with your purchases. There are “no strings attached” other than having to set-up an online account if you don’t have one.  
A frequently asked question about the Fred Meyer charity program is whether you lose your reward points by naming a charity.  The simple answer is NO. Here is a link to the frequently asked questions and information on how to link your rewards card. Last year we had 11 households that named KTA (organization number: CH538) as their non-profit generating $45 in donations per quarter.  

AmazonSmile is also simple to set-up. Follow this link to support of Klamath Trails Alliance or this link for more information.  With Amazon you will need to place your order on the AmazonSmile site in order in to generate contributions back to KTA.
