6-Day Program!

Spend a week hiking the exquisite and isolated Steens Mountain in Southeastern Oregon. We will travel along a creek up the gently sloping, west side of Steens mountain, exploring the flora and fauna of the high desert, and learning about the Basin and Range geology that extends across the west. We will spend 4 days on trail, and our last day we will take an excursion to the east side of Steens to the famous Alvord Desert. You will be one of the rare few who ever has been there! Recommended for campers 12 years and older who are in good physical condition.
