Currently, a forest recreation map of the combined Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest is not available in one map. However, maps of both the Rogue River and Siskiyou National Forests (two separate maps) are available from several different locations.

Siskiyou Mtns RD map

The Siskiyou Mountains Ranger District provides for a diverse array of recreation opportunities, including more than 40 miles of multi-use trails in the Ashland Municipal Watershed, exploration and solitude in the Red Buttes Wilderness, and skiing and snowboarding at Mt. Ashland. Applegate Lake offers water play for all types of users, and panoramic views can be seen from historic fire lookouts like Squaw Peak and Dutchman Peak. The Pacific Crest Trail follows the Siskiyou Crest, and makes for great day hiking opportunities.

Wild Rivers RD map image

The Wild Rivers Ranger District is home to unique and rare serpentine soils which create a diverse land of contrasts. The Illinois River was added to the Oregon State Scenic Waterways System in 1970 and the Federal Wild and Scenic River system in 1977. 

This map contains portions of three unique Wildernesses: the Kalmiopsis, the Red Buttes, and the Siskiyou Wilderness Areas.



Red Buttes map

The Red Buttes Wilderness, designated by Congress in 1984, is a land of craggy peaks, cold mountain streams, and extensive stands of old-growth forests with occasional meadows and other openings. Situated in both Oregon and California, the Red Buttes Wilderess (20,323 acres) includes the jagged crest of the Siskiyou Mountains along the watershed divide between the Rogue River and Klamath River drainages. The Wilderness is approximately 13 miles long and 6 miles wide, with elevations ranging from about 2,800 feet above sea level in the Butte Fork Canyon, to almost 6,740 feet at the east summit of Red Buttes.

Sky Lakes map

Sky Lakes Wilderness, designated by Congress in 1984, is famous for its multitudes of mountain lakes, rocky ridges, and timbered slopes. Sky Lakes Wilderness (113,590 acres) straddles southern Oregon's Cascade Range, from the southern boundary of Crater Lake National Park, southward to Highway 140. It is approximately six miles wide and twenty-seven miles long, with elevations ranging from 3,800 feet in the canyon of the Middle Fork of the Rogue River, to a lofty 9,495 feet at the top of Mount McLoughlin.

Siskiyou Wilderness map

The forested mountains, valleys and meadows of the Siskiyou Wilderness in California offer vistas of incredible beauty, diverse landscapes and remote solitude. Designated in 1984, the Siskiyou Wilderness was named for the rugged mountain headwaters of the Smith, Klamath and Illinois rivers in northwestern California. Forested ridges with high craggy peaks, fragile mountain meadows, small glacial lakes, and a mosaic of dense old-growth confier forest, mixed hardwood and shrub vegetation characterize the Siskiyou Wilderness landscapes.
