Location: #ApplegateLake , 30 miles southwest of Medford.
This reservoir is wreathed not only by the forests of the #SiskiyouMountains , but also by a convenient network of trails. Admittedly, low water levels occasionally expose the brown bathtub ring typical of reservoirs. Expect to see fish-hunting osprey, wildflowers in grassy openings, and glimpses of Siskiyou peaks. For an easy loop hike along the shore, explore the trails on a peninsula beside French Gulch. For a longer, level bike ride, circle the entire lake on a 17.8-mile route that’s two-thirds on trail and one-third on paved roads.
