Klamath Falls, Oregon Map

Very well maintained with nice views of Mt. McLoughlin.

Beautiful hike! We hiked farther than the listed mileage and then some into the forest north of the lava fields. We came across a fair amount of other hikers the day were were out. Everyone was friendly and courteous. The views and landscape of this trail are stunning! I wish we'd have taken more time to just sit and enjoy the view. The trail is very well maintained, easy to follow, and not really all that difficult (no steep ups or downs). Definitely recommend this one!

Better be in good shape and carry more water than you think

I found this link to be really helpful:
It describes 3 different ways to get to the top, and includes the starting point for each route.

great hike. Beautiful views of Klamath Falls, the lake and the mountains.

Take lots of bug spray!

Bring a bug net for the first few miles. It's easy to lose the trail on the way down from the summit.. keep four mile lake (skiers left) in sight on the way down. Great views above timberline!

Hiked this on July 6th....still had some snow patches! Made for a great solo hike and Puck Lake was calm and clear. Perfect hike to try out my new Black Diamond poles (especially on the initial switchbacks). Please follow all camping/fire restrictions and Leave No Trace!

Hiked the 6 mile roundtrip portion from the trailhead to Puck Lake. Minimal trail damage, a well maintained access road and a relatively easy hike (in my book). The initial switchbacks will get your heart going but then this trail takes it easy on you! Highly recommend! Thanks to all of you who Leave No Trace and follow camping/fire restrictions.

Beautiful day. Not sure why it is rated as hard.

Exposed, short, and flat. Pretty river view the whole trail.

Follow the white dots - parts of trail was snow covered yesterday which made us lose trail on the way up.
There also pink marks on trees to look out for at some places. Not a very well maintained trail, not a beginner trail. We made it to the summit and back in 7.5 hours.
Bring repellent - mosquitoes are fierce in the lower part of the trail.
And whatever you do - try to stay on the trail as much as you can. It can quickly become dangerous otherwise.

Pretty nice trail. We started at the trail head for nf 3640 and walked east to Great Meadow parking lot and back. Once we got to the starting trailhead we continue west for 2 miles until we came upon a huge volcanic lava rock area. Here we headed back to the starting point and logged 9.5 miles.

Being 4th of July weekend the trial was awesome! Few people and bikers! Everyone was friendly and nice.

The area is nicely cover with trees but carry bug spray.

Couldn't find the trailhead. The directions took us up some access roads for a few miles and finally dead ended at a downed tree. We hiked for bit after that and couldn't find an actual trail. Any day outside is a good day and, at least, it was an adventure.
