General Description: Located on the outskirts of the Clear Creek Management Area (CCMA), Condon Peak offers rolling grass-covered slopes with a few tall pines and shrubs, as well as steep slopes and rocky outcrops covered with pine and brush. With the opening of the summer deer-hunting season, Condon Peak experiences a surge in public use.
Condon Peak Recreation Area User Maps:
Recreation Opportunites: Include hunting, hiking, camping, stargazing, wildflower and wildlife viewing.
Dispersed camping is also available at Condon Peak, although there is no camping within 200 yards of any wildlife watering improvement. You must park within 15 feet (roughly one vehicle length) of any roadway when camping or leaving a vehicle unattended to minimize habitat and vegetation impacts. Please remember to bring a shovel with you for both personal sanitation and fire prevention purposes.
Hunting: Deer, wild pig, quail, chukar, and small game. There is no motorized access onto BLM land from the Condon Peak Access so hunters must be prepared to hike in and to pack their game out.
Hiking: A trail leading up the Condon Peak summit can be accessed from the parking area.
