General Trip Planning Information

The Owyhee Upland Backcountry Byway is typically passable to all types of vehicles May-November. There are no services including gas or potable water within 50 miles so bring plenty of both if traveling to this wilderness.

Recreational Opportunities

There are some outstanding moderate to difficult hiking or backpacking opportunities available. Wildlife viewing of pronghorn antelope and elk are possible.

Safety and Current Conditions

If camping, remember that the high desert is typically cool to cold at night even during the summer months when day temperatures are hot.
