The Spence Mountain project involves a phased development of a trail system on a beautiful 7,400 acre parcel of land owned by JWTR. The property is only 15 miles from Klamath Falls offering easy access to our community. Trails will be designed for multipurpose uses to accommodate mountain bikers, hikers, trail runners and even cross-country skiing and snowshoeing in the winter.
Spring 2019 Spence Mountain Trail update
With the completion of about 7 miles of trails in 2019, Spence Mountain currently has about 35 miles of trails available for mountain biking, walking, and running. These trails vary in difficulty from easy (Mazama Tr) to expert (North Ridge Tr). This years’s trail building included: 1) North Star: An easy 3.4 mile trail connecting Jct 7 to Winema. Modoc, Winema and North Star now make a 6 mile green loop. 2) Lower portion of Winema: 0.5 mi section of green trail and a 1.3 mi section of rowdier blue trail extending down to the lake meeting Queen of the Lake Tr. 3) Queen of the Lake: 1.9 mile black diamond trail long the lake. This trail is black because of a large amount of rocks, narrow trail, and short steep pitches.
Activites at Spence Mountain slow down in the winter due to snow and rain. Spence trails hold up better than Moore Park when wet, but they will get muddy as the moisture increases. Please stay off of muddy trails as they may be damaged in the process. That damage takes time and work to fix in the Spring.
