Bly, OR is in southeastern Klamath County in Oregon along Oregon Route 140. Fremont National Forest surrounds most of the area. Gearhart Mountain Wilderness is approximately 10 miles northeast of the town.
This trail accesses Slide Lake for fishing and picnicking opportunities. It is 1.0 miles long, and begins at the Slide Lake Trailhead on Forest Road 3360. The trail follows an abandoned road for most of its length. Some views of the geologically interesting collapsed face of Slide Mountain are offered from this trail.
Once at Slide Lake, you can relax, fish, birdwatch, and/or picnic in a lush mixed conifer setting. White fir, incense cedar, ponderosa and lodgepole pine trees offer shade and tranquility. There are also some dispersed camping sites at the lake, making this a good beginner backpacking destination.
