Klamath Mountains

▪ mountains, United States
      segment of the Pacific mountain system (q.v.) of western North America. The range extends southward for about 250 miles (400 km) from the foothills south of the Willamette Valley in southwestern Oregon, U.S., to the northwestern side of the Central Valley of California. The mountains rise to Mount Eddy (9,038 feet [2,755 m]) west of Mount Shasta in California and include numerous subranges. They are deeply dissected by many rivers (especially the Rogue and Klamath), and they contain a headstream of the Sacramento River. Largely within conservation areas, the range, named for the Klamath Indians, embraces parts of the Klamath and several other national forests and includes the Oregon Caves National Monument. Lumbering, dairying, fruit growing, hunting, fishing, and tourism are the main regional economic activities.
