Upper Klamath National Wildlife Refuge
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. For travel options plus weather and road conditions, visit tripcheck.com, call 511 (in Oregon only), 800.977.6368 or 503.588.2941.

Established in 1928 and spanning 15,000 acres, the Upper Klamath Wildlife Refuge contains freshwater hardstem-cattail marsh and open water and forested uplands. The refuge's habitats provide optimal nesting and rearing areas for American white pelican, herons, bald eagles and ospreys. It is also home to two endangered species of fish and one endangered frog species.
The refuge is a favorite stop off the Volcanic Legacy Scenic Byway.
