Life in Klamath Falls
FPC is nestled in the eastern foothills of the Cascade Mountains about 20 miles north of the California border. We are located roughly equidistant between Portland and Sacramento, and within easy driving distance of the Bay Area and Reno, Nevada.
At 4,100 feet, Klamath Falls is in Oregon’s high desert, with mountains to the west and north, desert to the east, and wetlands to the south. In this high desert oasis, we enjoy the openness of our beautiful outdoors, 300 days of sunshine a year, abundant hunting, world-class fly fishing, camping, cycling, and hiking all around us.
Runners, cyclists, and snowshoers enjoy the OC&E Trail, a 109- mile rail-to-trail conversion in Klamath and Lake Counties. The Great Klamath Circle, a 150+ mile network of trails, will one day circle Upper Klamath Lake and link Klamath Falls with the Fremont- Winema National Forest and Crater Lake National Park.
Over 5 miles of easily accessible nature and hiking trails exist within our city limits. A short drive leads to the Mountain Lakes Wilderness, Sky Lakes Wilderness, Pacific Crest Trail, Lake of the Woods, Mt. McLoughlin, Mt. Thielsen for exploring the wilds of the Cascade Mountains.
