Author: Ken Jones

A typical lower-elevation Cascade volcanic cone, and a popular local hike.

The trailhead is north of state route 140 between Medford and Klamath Falls. From a bit east of Fish Lake, take forest route 3650 northeasterly, and watch for signs to the Mt. McLoughlin trailhead.

From the trailhead, hike the well-marked trail through trees. Above timberline, the route is indicated with paint blotches on the rocks. Gain is about 4000' in a round trip of almost 10 miles.
