What are the transportation options?

Area roads may have snow or ice so AWD or 4×4 vehicles are recommended for driving in Klamath Falls. AMTRAK has service south from Portland, Salem, and Eugene and north from San Francisco area and Sacramento on the Coast Starlight. We encourage Audubon chapters to take advantage of group train tour options or form car pools.
