General Information



Driving Directions from Baker City Oregon/I-84: Take Exit 302 and head East on Oregon Highway 86 toward Hells Canyon/Richland Oregon for approximately 50 miles.

Bear left onto Highway 12 at the Welcome to Halfway sign. Continue for approximately 6.9 miles. (You will go through the town of Halfway where the road will become South Main, North Main, and then the Halfway/Cornucopia Highway 413.)

Once you have passed what is called Carson (just a small sign along the road) you will come to a fork in the road; take the dirt road to the left which is still the Halfway/Cornucopia Highway 413 for approximately 5 miles until you reach Cornucopia. This road is narrow with pull outs.

Once at Cornucopia you will need to take a right to go toward the Cornucopia Lodge. (look for the lodge sign at the rail fence) Once you have made this right there will be signs on trees provided by the Cornucopia Lodge on where you can park to access the trails in the area.

*Please remember you are on private property most all of the way to Cornucopia as well as once you get to Cornucopia. Please be respectful of the land.*
