Trout Creek and Oregon Canyon Mountains
Burns District | OR
Season Dates: 5/1 - 11/30
The Trout Creek and Oregon Canyon Mountains provide many unique resources: beautiful scenery, historic stage station ruins, clear, clean streams, a variety of interesting vegetation, abundant wildlife such as trophy mule deer, sage grouse and Lahontan cutthroat trout, Wilderness Study Areas, and settings for primitive and semi-primitive recreation. With a vault restroom and a few metal grills for campfires and cooking, Willow Creek Hot Springs is the only developed site. The rest of the area is open for dispersed camping.
The main access routes into the area are the Trout Creek Road on the northwest side, the Willow Creek road on the north side, Oregon Canyon (or Wood) Road on the east side, and Zimmerman Road on the south side. The roads are rough and rocky in places, with steep, narrow stretches, and unimproved stream crossings. Depending on weather conditions, roads may be impassable. We recommend high clearance vehicles. Contact the Burns District BLM Office for specific directions via these access routes.
