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.
If you do not have the software to view these files, download it.
