Upper Klamath Lake
In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions.

Nearly 30 miles long and eight miles wide with depths of up to 60 feet, the Upper Klamath Lake is the largest freshwater body west of the Rocky Mountains. The lake's Pelican Bay draws anglers who watch catch large trout while wildlife observers come to see the many waterfowl, otter, mink, deer and bald eagles.
The lake is a stop off the Volcanic Legacy Scenic Byway.
