Moore Mountain Trail System: From easy jaunts to strenuous climbs, more than 20 miles of hiking and biking trails wend their way above the southern shore of Upper Klamath Lake, with frequent views of the Link River Canyon, Lake Ewauna, and Mount Scott’s volcanic cinder cone.

ROE Outfitters: Launch a canoe or kayak for a lake paddle, explore the freakishly blue Wood River (north of the lake), or bounce through rapids on the Upper Klamath River with local guides. (“ROE” stands for Real Oregon Experience.)
