The Klamath National Forest's 1.7 million acres offers winding river canyons, rugged lake-speckled wilderness areas, and distinctive volcanic landscapes. Over 200 miles of the Klamath, Scott and Salmon Rivers are National Wild & Scenic Rivers. Native runs of wild salmon and steelhead are prized elements of these rich river systems. Nearly 25% of the Forest is designated as Wilderness including: Marble Mountain, Russian, parts of the Siskiyou, Trinity Alps & Red Buttes Wilderness areas. Geology and climate support unique ecosystems of unsurpassed diversity and rare species to discover and enjoy.
