Although I can not run, I can walk, and as mundane as that is compared to my favored exhilarating cadence, it is most probably the best way to explore most of the unkempt trails that wind their way through the Kalmiopsis Wilderness Area. The Kalmiopsis, in the Rogue RIver-Siskiyou National Forest, is the most hauntingly rugged and desolate wilderness area in which I have ever been. The 2002 Biscuit Fire burnt the entire wilderness area and makes any planned single track running traverse of the area into more of a step picking and route checking orienteering expedition. The area is also practically void of noticeable animal life, and fortunately, human life as well. If you are looking for an eerily beautiful, rugged place in the Klamath Mountains, this would be a good place to start.
