Region covered by this site
Highway 199 is an 80 mile highway that runs between Highway 101 and Crescent City in California to Interstate 5 and Grants Pass in Oregon. It is the main travel corridor between Redwood National and State Park and Crater Lake National Park, most of which is designated as scenic byways. This site provides information about the central segment of Highway 199 in the Siskiyou Mountains of Oregon. This is one of the least appreciated parts of the state and few people stop here because so little is known about the astonishing number of outdoor recreation opportunities and old fashioned community events.
