Description

The 103-mile Owyhee Uplands Back Country Byway offers high desert scenery at its finest. From expanses of sagebrush and grasslands to sheer, red-walled river canyons, the Byway provides an opportunity to visit a vast, little-known, and unchanged corner of the American West.

Map + Directions

Basic Directions

The Byway is located in Owyhee County, Idaho, and Malheur County, Oregon. It can be reached from the west through Jordan Valley, Oregon and from the east via State Highway 78 near Grand View, Idaho. A roundtrip from Boise is approximately 250 miles and takes a full day. The Byway makes for a great overnight camping trip if you have the time.
