Day Hiking

Day hiking is what you make of it. Take short strolls on paved paths or long climbs up to high ridge lines or peaks with great views. There are countless opportunities for hiking in unique areas of scenic beauty within the Modoc. Not all trails are well marked. Take a good map and compass on all day hikes and backpack trips.  Always tell someone where you are going and when you plan to return.
