Trail News & Information

 

Spence Mountain Trail Tour  (Saturday, September 12th)

The Klamath Trails Alliance will show its work at Spence Mountain to visitors on Sept. 12 when it partners with the Klamath Lake Land Trust for a guided hike. 
KTA members will teach hikers about the trail's history and what we have planned in the future. 
The hike will start at 9 a.m., Saturday, Sept. 12 at the Spence Mountain trailhead. It will last about three hours and cover about 2.5 miles.
Hikers should wear appropriate shoes or boots and bring plenty of water.
We'll be meeting in the roughly graded parking area near the future trail head... just 1/2 mile up the hill from the Howard Bay Boat Ramp on Hwy 140. 

If you want to carpool, meet at the land trust office, 212 S. Ninth St., Klamath Falls, at 8:15 a.m.

Moore Cowbell!
On Sept. 13 and 20 Moore Park will host the annual Moore Cowbell Cyclocross races. 
"A super fast, fun, classic grass course," the Facebook page says. All ages and levels are welcome to the events. 
All the race proceeds are donated to Friends of Moore Park's trail development and maintenance.

On two Saturdays in September Crater Lake National Park will close the East Rim Drive to vehicle traffic, leaving it open for hikers and bikers to experience Oregon's national park in a unique way. 
The Ride the Rim days are on Sept. 19th and Sept. 26th.
