Alturas Recreation Area

Description:

The Alturas resource area encompasses a panorama of diversity, from evergreen forests to rocky lava flows to high desert plains. The recreational opportunities are as varied as the landscape. The visitor can camp in remote settings, hike the emigrant trails that dissect the lands, or watch herds of Pronghorn Antelope and Mule Deer. Several Indian and settler conflicts, including the Modoc Indian War of 1872-73, occurred in this region and impart to the area a rich sense of history.The proximity of the Lava Beds National Monument and the Modoc National Wildlife Refuge provide further recreational opportunities. From hiking, camping and fishing to mountain biking and auto tours, this unspoiled country offers it all.
