Siskiyou County, California
Stock Photo Gallery

Located in Northern California along the Oregon border, Siskiyou County is a mountain-high, river-deep wonderland rich in history, natural resources, and recreational opportunities.

Comprised of the Cascade Range in the East and the Klamath Mountains in the West, the region originally was the homeland of the Karuk, Modoc, Shasta, and Wintu Native Americans until gold miners arrived to scour its rivers and creeks in the mid-1800s. Today, while mostly recreational mining continues, rivers like the Klamath and Salmon are better known for their steelhead and salmon fishing or for the rapids that challenge and delight rafters and kayakers.

Much of the region is densely forested National Forest land. Wilderness Areas such as the Marble Mountain, Russian, and Siskiyou (one of my favorites - filled with black bears... or was that Bigfoot?) offer solitude to backpackers, equestrians and skiers.

Siskiyou County is also at the heart of the State of Jefferson. In November of 1941, several Northern California and Southern Oregon counties attempted to secede from their respective states to form a new state - Jefferson. Had it not been for the outbreak of WWII, Jefferson might have become the 49th State of the Union instead of Alaska!
