Description

At the mouth of Link River where it drains from Upp Klamath Lake, the rural Link River Nature Trail begins, where it follows along the small river and provides amazing highlights like nature watching, scenic views, and a peaceful area to walk in. Although the path is made of packed gravel, the surface is pretty even and provides a simple place to walk with Fido. 

The natural area is known for its diverse species of birds, from Barrow's Goldeneye to Hooded Merganser. These and more can be seen in their natural habitat, whether taking a swim in the river or making their nests in the nearby trees. Thanks to the area's riparian habitat, and a hillside filled with Juniper-sage brushland, it is home to a number of species during the summer, spring, and winter.

Not only is there wildlife to see, but also an array of landscape features with as the rapids of the river, boulders in the water, and pretty scenes of Klamath Falls, in which the town is named after. The trail is only used for foot travel, so you don't have to worry about too many things getting in the way of your's and fido's pawtastic walk. Although there aren't too many amenities along the trail's side, an offshoot trail connects the Link River Nature Trail with Moore Park, which offers plenty. There are restrooms, water fountains, a museum, picnic areas, a boat launch, and concessions available inside the park.

From lively birdwatching activities to glorious views of the waterfalls, Link River Trail won't only provide you and Fido a great area to walk in, but a peaceful place to get some exercise and enjoy the outdoors in its natural setting.

Cautions & Considerations
The trail has no parking, so trail-goers will need to park in a parking site in the downtown area of the city and will need to walk along the side of the road along a bridge to get to the trail. Disturbing the wildlife is prohibited, so keep an eye on your pup if they like to play with birds!
