Elk Valley Trail Head directions & map
Elk Valley Trail Head directions
At the South end of Orleans, on Hwy. 96 (Klamath River Hwy.) not far past the Orleans Motel, take the nice paved FS road 15N01. Follow this nice wide paved road for about 30 miles up the mountain almost to it's end. (the road suddenly ends about 1/2 mile after the turn off to Elk Valley). The turn off is often totally un-marked because the road signs are removed by locals, so you have to watch the map closely to find the right turn off. This turn-off does not have a FS road # on my map. I strongly suggest having a copy of the FS Natl. Forest map with you and watch the road numbers closely.
