Yreka is located twenty-two miles
south of the Oregon border on Interstate 5 and is the county seat of Siskiyou County.
Yreka's elevation is 2,595 feet and September is usually warm, but because of elevation
and the elevations you may climb, it is always best to be prepared for inclement weather.
Siskiyou County is noted for the Mt.
Shasta Ski and Recreation Area, Marble Mountain Wilderness, trails and camping, river
rafting, a steam engine excursion train, historical districts, antiques, and soon to be
known for its bicycle touring.
