Spence Mountain is a new trail system conceived of, designed and built by mountain bikers for mountain bikers. It would be hard to cram anything more into Spence Mountain; it has long climbs, fast descents, jumps, rock gardens and berms, all capped with stunning views of Upper Klamath Lake, Oregon’s largest inland body of water. A long shoulder season makes this ride an excellent option for early- or late-season visits, and downtown Klamath Falls is only 15 minutes away.
