Red Buttes Wilderness, designated by Congress in 1984, is a
land of craggy peaks, cold mountain streams, and extensive stands
of old-growth forests with occasional meadows and other openings.
Situated in both Oregon and California, Red Buttes Wilderess
(20,323 acres) includes the jagged crest of the Siskiyou Mountains
along the watershed divide between the Rogue River and Klamath
River drainages. The Wilderness is approximately 13 miles long and
6 miles wide, with elevations ranging from about 2,800 feet above
sea level in the Butte Fork Canyon to almost 6,740 feet at the
east summit of Red Buttes.
