#3 of 7 in Parks in Klamath Falls
The OC&E Woods Line State Trail is a rail trail in Klamath and Lake counties in the U.S. state of Oregon. It is Oregon's longest state park. The trail follows the old OC&E (Oregon, California and Eastern) and Weyerhaeuser railroads from Klamath Falls to Thompson Reservoir. Along its 105mi length it passes through the communities of Olene, Sprague River, Dairy, Beatty, and Bly.
The OC&E Woods Line State Trail is paved from Klamath Falls to the community of Olene, approximately 8mi. Beyond Olene, the trail surface is graded and compacted, which attracts mountain bikers, hikers, anglers, equestrian users, and wildlife watchers. Additionally, the trail has a gentle 2 percent slope grade.
Construction on the OC&E Railroad began in the summer of 1917 as part of a grand scheme to connect Central and Eastern Oregon with rail lines and take advantage of timber opportunities. Initial development efforts involved bonds sold by the city of Klamath Falls. Logging camps with spur railroads sprang up almost overnight, and by 1919, four lumber mills were located on the main line. After several delays, the OC&E was declared open in the fall of 1923, and in 1927 was extended to Bly.

  • Well taken care of, clean and safe feeling. This is a great place to take your walk or to ride your bike. Being an old RR bed, nothing is ever steep. From BiMart to Olene, it's beautifully paved...  more »
  • This rail trail is as straight as an arrow from KF to Oleans about 9 miles each way. This section is paved with over 500 bumpy frost cracks so it is more suited to a mountain bike than a road bike...  more »
