Somes-Bar is a tiny community located in the Shasta Cascade region off Highway 96, 110 miles southwest of Yreka and 110 miles northeast of Arcata. Nestled in the magnificent Klamath Mountains, this small town offers peaceful seclusion among the giant fir trees and majestic hardwoods near the Salmon and Klamath Rivers. Somes Bar sits right at the crossroads of the Siskiyou and Humboldt County lines, in a region rich in history and natural beauty, with a varied landscape. The nearby Klamath National Forest offers mountain biking, hiking, swimming, rafting and kayaking, drift boat fishing, wildlife viewing, horseback riding and camping. The Siskiyou and Marble Mountain Wilderness areas of the Klamath National Forest have miles of mountain trails leading to high peaks and mountain meadows full of wildflowers. Beautiful lakes and clean, clear swimming holes dot the area, and the Redwood National Park is about a two-hour drive west. In wintertime, snowmobiling, cross-country and downhill skiing are available. Guided fishing and whitewater raft trips can be arranged with the local licensed outfitters, with opportunities ranging from world class IV and V runs on the Salmon River or less difficult class III and IV runs on the Klamath River.

Somes Bar Weather & Climate

Northwest California , near the Klamath River and the Oregon border has a cool weather climate year round. Summer temperatures are normally around the 65-degree mark, and rarely exceed 80 degrees. Unlike many other parts of the state, rain can be expected almost any month of the year, although the official rainy season runs October through March or early April. The average annual rainfall is 75 inches per year. Located near the Pacific Ocean, this region frequently experiences low clouds and fog right along the coastline, with clearing the further inland you travel. The same cool, ocean mists that nurture the giant redwoods of the region provide relief for visitors who come to the area to escape the summer heat of the interior valleys.
