She's still around, but she seems to pick her roles carefully.
"CAREER IN THE '60s:
In her early twenties she was a busy TV actress, usually appearing in
Westerns like "The Virginian," "Gunsmoke," and "The Wild, Wild West."
She then made a couple of minor movies in the mid-'60s before The
Graduate launched her to stardom.
CAREER OUTSIDE THE '60s:
After Butch Cassidy, more Westerns carried her into the '70s and
beyond: Redford's Tell Them Willie Boy Is Here in '69, and the TV
movies Wanted: The Sundance Woman in '76, The Shadow Riders in '83,
Red-Headed Stranger in '86, and Conagher in '91, which she co-wrote.
Other notable post-60s credits include The Stepford Wives in '75,
Voyage of the Damned in '76, Irwin Allen's The Swarm in '78, The Final
Countdown with Kirk Douglas in '80, and the part of Francesca on "The
Colbys" from '85 to '87. Late in 2001 Katharine made a well-received
return to the big screen with a role as a therapist in the black
comedy Donnie Darko."

Perhaps the best answer to the question "What happened to Katharine
Ross?" is "She lived happily ever after." For twenty years, Ms. Ross
has been married to actor Sam Elliott. By golly, if I were married to
Sam Elliott, I'd probably stay home a lot, too. ;-)
Katharine Ross has written many children's books, including "The Baby
Animals' Party," "Mama Loves," "Bear Island," "The Little Ballerina,"
and "My Favorite Things."

and their beautiful daughter Cleo:
