Krazy About Klamath County

Maybe Oregon's best kept secret

September 2007 Feature LANE LINDSTROM

One mountain does not a riding area make.

Or does it?

You could make a pretty good argument for Pelican Butte, perched on the western shores of Upper Klamath Lake in southwest Oregon. It's only one mountain. But who knew you could have so much fun on just one mountain.

Pelican Butte could well be considered the centerpiece of snowmobiling in Oregon's Klamath County, partly because you can see this 8,036-foot volcano from just about everywhere in the county but mostly because it's one of the few big mountains still open to riding in this area. Either way you shouldn't miss it.

But don't think Pelican Butte is the only place to sled in Klamath County-there's plenty of good riding in the northern three quarters of the county. We spent two full days covering a lot of territory but still couldn't take all of Klamath County in. There's just too much country for two days.
