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. Thanks to Terra Velo and Dirt Mechanics for their hard work on this project.
Spring 2021 Spence Mountain Trail update
Red Rover and portions of Speed King trails are now open. Red Rover is a walking/stroller trail loop that is separated from the rest of the system to minimize interaction from other trail users. It is Ok for bikes, but as the builder says – “as long as you are 4 or 64.” This is an easy 1 mile loop off of the main 140 trailhead. Speed King is a flow trail that has 2/3 of a mile open at present, the rest to be completed in the fall 2021. This can be accessed from South ridge trail from a couple of signed connectors. Speed King is meant to be a fun trail with lots of jumps, berms. It is wide and smooth and one-way downhill.
Activities 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.
