Overlapping northern California and southern Oregon this 180,000 acre Kalmiopsis Wilderness is characterized by deep rough canyons, sharp rock ridges, and clear rushing streams and rivers. An outstanding botanical and geologic region can be accessed by a 20 mile gravel road that takes you to the Babyfoot Lake trail head. Most of the trails drop into the Upper Chetco River drainage. Another follows the ridges to the Pearsoll Peak fire tower.
