Explore Oregon Caves - Above Ground
We have four hiking trails with wonderful views of Oregon Caves National Monument and the Siskiyou Mountains that surround it. Most of the trails weave in and out of the boundary of the monument.
You can download maps of individual trails on the monument which are found on the pages about the trails, or you can download maps of larger views of Oregon Caves which include all of the trails found up here.
(Note: You will need Adobe Reader to view these files. If you need the latest version you can download it here.)

Helps Us Stop the Spread of Fungi!
A major threat to Port Orford cedar population is Phytophthora root rot, a disease spread by water or mud. Prevent the spread of the disease by cleaning the mud from your shoes and vehicles before traveling from one area of the forest to another.
Did You Know?
Scorpions fluoresce or glow under ultraviolet (UV) black light. They can glow electric green or blue. Scorpions fluoresce because they contain a fluorescent protein in the upper layer of their exoskeleton. This layer is like your fingernail, but even more protective and tough. The special protein inside is thought by scientists to serve as an ultraviolet sensitivity mechanism, perhaps allowing the scorpion to avoid burning itself by staying exposed too long to damaging light levels.
