The 1.7 million acre Malheur National Forest is located in the Blue Mountains of Eastern Oregon. The diverse and beautiful scenery of the forest includes high desert grasslands, sage and juniper, pine, fir and other tree species, and the hidden gems of alpine lakes and meadows. Elevations vary from about 4000 feet (1200 meters) to the 9038 foot (2754 meters) top of Strawberry Mountain. The Strawberry Mountain range extends east to west through the center of the forest.
Forest Road Conditions: Know before you go!
The condition of forest roads can change dramatically without warning; wind, snow and rain events can have substantial and detrimental effects on road and trail conditions causing hazards and obstructions to travel. It is advisable to consult your local ranger district office before your trip.
