Kalmiopsis Wilderness is a
wilderness area in the
Klamath Mountains of southwestern
Oregon, within the
Rogue River – Siskiyou National Forest. It was designated wilderness by the
United States Congress in 1964 and now comprises a total of 179,755 acres (72,744 ha).
 There are approximately 153 miles (246 km) of trails on 24 established hiking trails in the area.
The Kalmiopsis Wilderness was named for
Kalmiopsis leachiana, a slow-growing plant related to the
rhododendron, which was discovered in the area in 1930.
The wilderness area was established in 1964. In 2002, lightning started the
Biscuit Fire that burned much of the area and damaged many of the hiking trails.
 Some of the trails destroyed in the fire re-opened in 2015.
