      The Siskiyou is a light to moderately used wilderness with most use concentrated along major trail systems and mountain lakes, particularly Young's Valley, Doe Flat, Buck Lake, Devil's Punchbowl, South Kelsey Trail near Elk Horn Bar, Summit Valley, Little Bear Valley and Kelly Lake. The most heavily used area in the wilderness is Kelly Lake.

      The slim steep canyons, slender ridge tops and dense brush inhibit travel off of established trails. But hikers will find many trail options for trekking into the wilderness. You'll find opportunities for full or half day hikes as well as weeklong backpacking or equestrian trips. (Forage is limited and stock feed is advisable.) Some trails are primitive and receive light use and require a high degree of back country skills to negotiate safely. Others are well marked National Recreation Trails. Do your research, and then choose the trail that matches your skills and the type of experience you're seeking.

      The Siskiyou Wilderness high country holds religious and cultural significance to Native Americans. Certain areas within the wilderness have been determined to be eligible for the National Register of Historic Places.

      Trails in the northern portion of the Siskiyou Wilderness are accessed from FS east of Gasquet or near Happy Camp.
