OC&E Woods Line State Trail to Silver Lake (82 miles)
OC&E Woods Line State Trail is Oregon’s longest linear park. This 100-mile trail is built on the old railbed of the Oregon, California and Eastern Railroad. The trail is open to all non-motorized recreation, beginning in the heart of Klamath Falls and extending east to Bly and further north to the Sycan Marsh. The first 7.1 miles are paved; the remaining 88 miles of trail are less improved but still a great ride. Beautiful scenery abounds, with majestic Mt. Shasta rising to the south, plus farmland, juniper, sagebrush and timberlands, with highlights including Lost River and Merritt Creek Trestle. At mile 49 the route splits and you can either head east to Bly (14 more miles) or take a left and head north to the Silver Lake area (33 more miles).
