Klamath Falls in Klamath County, Oregon — The American West (Northwest)
At Olene Gap
At Olene Gap the right-of-way of the OC&E hugs the higher north bank. Below it and south across the river are part of the canal and flume system of the Klamath Reclamation Project. The water in the ditches comes from Gerber Reservoir, an artificial lake created in 1926 on the highlands east of Langell Valley. Between the highway, that cuts through Olene Gap, and the OC&E are several geothermal vents. On cold days steam rises from these hot springs.
Erected by Oregon State Parks, OC&E Woodsline State Trail.
