Recommended Route

There are few places where you can drive on a dirt road for over a 100 miles and not see any pavement and very few people. This is what makes the Owyhee Uplands Byway unique. Fall is the perfect time of year to embark on a journey on this byway and see some of the most remote areas in the lower 48 states. You will want to be aware of changing road conditions in November, but we are always happy to help you with your planning. In fact a Wandervan Campervan is perfect for this adventure! 

Another way to experience this route is by mountain bike or cyclocross bike. Using the Wandervan as the support vehicle you drive the route while friends ride there bikes. This is an amazing way to experience this route. There are no massive climbs along the route so it is a great start for someone looking to accomplish a gravel century ride.

The BLM has an extensive guide on this route with info and camping information. It is recommended to download this guide before beginning the route since you will not have any cell service in between Grandview, ID and Jordan Valley, OR.

The recommended start is in Jordan Valley, OR and then you will end in Grandview, ID. There are no supplies along the way so you should leave Jordan Valley with enough fuel and food for the entire journey.
