Explore the surprising connections between geology and hydrology in the Williams Basin and the Grayback Pluton complex. In an online classroom session, learn how the geologic terranes of the Klamath Mountains formed, and how the water stored in the plutonic rocks of the Grayback Mountain area has important effects on streams, salmon habitat, and water flow in the Applegate Watershed. Then in the field, explore the geology of the Grayback Pluton first-hand by hiking the beautiful trail to Mt. Elijah, accompanied by the spectacular views and meadows surrounding the Bigelow Lakes Basin.

 

Difficult (3-5 miles of hiking and/or climbs of up to 1000 ft)
