Baldwin Hotel Museum is on 31 Main Street in Klamath Falls. It is next to Veterans Memorial Park on the eastern bank of Klamath River where it meets Lake Ewauna. It is 0.2 miles from the Favell Museum which is across the Klamath River. Children’s Museum of Klamath Falls is less than two miles to the east from Baldwin Hotel Museum. Of all the things to do in Klamath Falls, the former hotel and present-day museum is one of the most unique places to visit.

About Baldwin Hotel Museum

In 1905, George Baldwin had a hardware store at the site when the railroad was poised to be developed along Link River. Sensing an opportunity, he developed a hotel against the sturdy basalt cliff. The construction was completed by 1911, albeit the railroad took an alternate route. The rocky hillside provided a solid foundation, and the hotel was developed in a rather unique way. It had plumbing systems in all rooms, which was not common at that time. Some rooms had en-suite bathrooms including bathtubs. The plumbing fixtures were designed to be in the open along the walls, visible for guests to know that such facilities were available. All the rooms on every floor in the hotel were interconnected and designed in a manner that they could be used as segregated units or they could be collectively used as a suite. The rooms were later upgraded to impress business travelers, so that they could use the units as apartments and for office purposes.

The hotel was sold by George Baldwin’s daughter to Andrew Moore and Cordelia Moore in 1923. The Moore family operated the property till 1951. Their daughter Vera Jones inherited the property after their retirement and operated the hotel with Mart Jones, her husband. Years of slump in business made the hotel financially unviable, and lack of maintenance rendered the property almost unusable. It was in a dire state and due to be demolished when the county purchased the property following a campaign by a group of citizens. Klamath County bought the property with its contents. It was turned to Baldwin Hotel Museum, still featuring the brass beds, claw foot tubs, dressers and various items of a bygone era. The museum has also received collectibles from various sources over the years and is itself a unique exhibit. You can visit the museum from Memorial Day to Labor Day. There are one hour and two-hour tours, and you can explore all the four floors.

If you find yourself in Klamath Falls, Oregon, you do not have to go too far to enjoy an incredible scenic hike. Hogback Mountain, which towers across the east side of the city of Klamath Falls, presents itself as a good spot to enjoy hiking along its 5-mile trail. If you are visiting Oregon, or have just come into town on a vacation, you can explore Hogback Mountain and take the opportunity to exercise while enjoying a great view and the scenery.

Hike Hogback Mountain in Klamath Falls

Hogback Mountain is a large hill located northeast of Klamath Falls. Named Hogback Mountain because it looks like the shoulders of a pig, this 6,205 ft. elevation mountain is mostly privately owned but is open to hikers, so you can enjoy a good climb and some impressive views of the area. Once you get to Klamath Falls, it is not difficult to find Hogback Mountain. You can just look for a giant “M” sign on the mountain, towards the southeast area of Downtown Klamath Falls. The trail for ‘hiking the Hog’ starts just behind The Foothills Fellowship Church located on Patterson Street, below the M-sign. From here, this trail then continues uphill, straight up the mountain. A good thing is you can always take the same trail back to the trailhead so it’s pretty tough to get lost!

There is one landmark to look out for if you wish to take a little rest. You can look out for the Lone Pine along the trail; known to have fallen during a storm, the tree since then remained a logical stopping point for hikers. You can enjoy this hike on Hogback Mountain with family and friends, but be sure to hike with plenty of water, as there is no water available along the trail. You should also be prepared with snacks to restore your energy and do not forget to wear good boots to tread this rocky trail.

OC&E Woods Line State Trail is a rail trail that traverses Klamath and Lake Counties, making one of the longest linear parks on Oregon. Why is it called OC&E? OC&E stands for Oregon, California & Eastern Railroad.  The path begins from the heart of Klamath Falls and extends eastward Bly and to Sycan Marsh in North. The 105 mile length of the trail affords many recreational activities such as mountain biking, hiking, horseback riding and nature viewing.

About OC&E Woods Line State Trail

The OC&E Woods Line State Trail began as a railroad in 1923 connecting Klamath Falls to central Oregon to support logging and timber industries.  As the production of timber began to slow, the railroad saw a decline in traffic and in the 1980s, and Weyerhauser, the large paper company, donated the line to the Oregon Park and Recreation Department in 1992. The trail was originally developed with a motive of connecting Eastern and central part of Oregon with railway lines and to explore production of timber but after serving the purpose for so many years, it was converted to non-motorized path.
The Trail connects 8 communities within the Klamath Falls area and offers a paved flat trail for biking, hiking, wildlife excursions.  Many trails fork from the OC&E Woods Line. The entire stretch boasts stunning scenery. Along this path you  can also find a historical caboose on the old train tracks where you can read about history about the operations of train and trail system. There are several historical points of interest on the trail such as a steel bridge that provides connections to several suburban areas. It’s a great trail if you want to go for some cycling, biking, horseback riding, inline skating or just want to enjoy the tranquility of nature in the Klamath Falls area.
The park hosts more than 150,000 visitors every year and is a busy thoroughfare for people wanting to get out and get some fresh air. Restrooms are available in the parking area. Learn more here: http://oregonstateparks.org/index.cfm?do=parkPage.dsp_parkPage&parkId=167
