Welcome to the Kalapuya Crest, offering 50 scenic trail miles through the mountain crossroads of Oregon. These old trails in the Oregon Cascades Recreation Area stretch across the Pacific Crest of the Cascades into the Calapooya Range, together forming the geographic and cultural boundaries of the west, south and eastern regions of the state. Starting and finishing on the shores of shimmering Crescent Lake, the course crosses over the Pacific Crest twice, circumnavigates the old volcanic peak of Sawtooth Mountain, and features dozens of pristine turquoise lakes, alpine meadows, talus gardens and volcanic pinnacles… and it wouldn’t be a Daybreak race without a few remote, rowdy mountain climbs, all-time views and spirited volunteers.
Land Acknowledgement: Kalapuya Crest travels on the ancestral lands of the native Kalapuya, Molalla and Klamath peoples, who have occupied and stewarded these lands for countless generations. We respect their right to self-determination and their sacred connection to these lands and waters.
