Westside Fire Recovery Project Information

Rugged mountains of the Marble Mountain WildernessThe Klamath National Forest encompasses nearly 1.7 million acres of land straddling the California and Oregon border.  The Forest is divided into two sections separated by the Shasta Valley and the I-5 corridor.  In the mountains to the west, the terrain is steep and rugged. The east-side has the relatively gentler, rolling terrain of volcanic origin.  With elevations ranging from 450 to 8,900 feet above sea level, the Klamath National Forest is one of America’s most biologically diverse regions. It is situated in a transitional region between the hotter and drier areas to the south and the colder, wetter climate to the north.

The U.S. Forest Service now offers access to a variety of visitor maps for people using Android and iOS devices.
