The 1.1-million acre Winema National Forest is located within Klamath County in south central Oregon on the
eastern slopes of the Cascade Mountain Range. The Winema isn't necessarily what you'd expect from an Oregon
forest — contrary to Oregon's reputation for rain, the area is best known for clear skies and sunshine.
Twenty-two miles of the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail run through the forest. The Forest borders Crater
Lake National Park near the crest of the Cascades and stretches eastward into the Klamath River Basin. Near
he floor of the Basin the Forest gives way to vast marshes and meadows associated with Upper Klamath Lake and
the Williamson River. To the north and east extensive stands of ponderosa and lodgepole pine grow on deep
pumice and ash which blanketed the area during the eruption of Mt. Mazama (now Crater Lake) nearly 7,000 years ago.
