It's only a few minutes to drive from this home to the tiny historic community of Callahan. Callahan was a gold rush town and one time bustling with several thousand miners, but now is a tiny community of less than 200. There is still a post office, small church, a historic cemetery, and a bar which also serves great steaks and carries a few necessities, along with offering live music some weekends. While the Klamath National Forest is right out the back door, you can also go just up the highway to reach the edge of the Trinity Alps Mountains and the Pacific Crest Trail, and it's under an hour to Trinity Lake for water skiing and world-class small-mouth bass fishing.
If you've never been to Scott Valley, this quiet rural agricultural community has several elementary schools, a junior high, high school, medical services, shopping, restaurants, etc. It's not far to the Siskiyou County seat of Yreka, which sports a small hospital, groceries, more shopping, and easy access to I-5 and Southern Oregon. Scott Valley is bordered by thousands of acres of timbered wilderness in the Klamath National Forest, including the Trinity Alps Wilderness, the Russian Wilderness, and the Marble Mountain Wilderness - an area known for its scenic beauty, many small lakes, fishing, hiking, packing & horseback riding, the Pacific Crest Trail, blacktail deer, and bear hunting, and hidden caves.
