Summit Sno-Park/ Trailhead

Area Status: Open
This area is Open

Summit Sno-Park is located 45 minutes west of Klamath Falls, Oregon off of highway 140, just east of the Klamath-Jackson County line. A classic High Cascades forest of rich green Douglas, Grand, and White firs dominate the landscape. At 5,000 feet in elevation, this Sno-Park is perched on the crest of the southern Oregon Cascades Mountains. 

Summit is the only Sno-Park that is exclusive to cross country skiers in the Fremont-Winema National Forest! It offers an expansive parking lot for up to 50 cars, and one vault toilet. It also hosts a trailhead to the Pacific Crest Trail which heads north into Sky Lakes Wilderness. Food and lodging available at nearby Lake of the Woods Resort and Fish Lake Resort.

Be sure to pick up a winter trails map at either the Klamath or Chiloquin Ranger District. You can expect snow from late November through February, and often in the shoulder seasons. 

There is no potable water. Visitors need to bring plenty of water.
