Topsy hike to explore Klamath River Canyon

A guided history hike in the Klamath River Canyon on Oct. 12 will explore early wagon roads that were among the earliest transportation routes in Klamath County, according to a news release.

The hike, rated as difficult, is cosponsored by the Klamath County Museum and the Bureau of Land Management Klamath Falls Resource Area.

The all-day event is free, but space is limited and preregistration is required.

The hike will begin at the rim of the Klamath River Canyon, and descend about 1,000 feet over a distance of about 2 miles on an old wagon road. The hike back to the top will be on a different abandoned road.

Participants should pack a lunch, drinking water and gear appropriate for varying weather conditions.

The hike group will meet in Dorris. Participants should be prepared to drive their own vehicles for several miles over gravel roads to the hike starting point.

For more information or to register for the hike, contact the Klamath County Museum, 1451 Main St. in Klamath Falls, at 541-882-1000.

n Fall is a great time of year to target trout in Cottonwood Meadows Lake and Duncan Reservoir.
