Cascade Siskiyou National Monument

PROTECTED: Extraordinary Views in a Unique Island of Biological Diversity

Completed Projects Cascade Siskiyou National Monument

These land acquisitions ensure that the Pacific Crest Trail remains the best way to experience the amazing diversity of this national monument.

Located at the crossroads of the Cascade, Klamath and Siskiyou mountain ranges, Cascade-Siskiyou is the first national monument created solely for its biological diversity—and there’s a lot of it. Often called the “Galapagos of North America,” this rugged region is home to more than 3,500 plant and animal species, many found only here. Visitors are welcome to explore the monument’s rugged backcountry, and the best way to do so is on the Pacific Crest Trail.

There have been 6 land acquisitions in the CSNM that have protected the PCT trail corridor, as well as 2,830 acres of land within view of the trail.
