The Bird Days of Summer: South Steens Camp and Hike (Harney County)
Come see the wildflowers and birds of the glacially carved Little Blitzen Gorge. Camping gear available for folks who need it. Please let Teresa Wicks know ahead of time, firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Little Blitzen Gorge is a glacially carved gorge on Steens Mountain. This trail runs from South Steens campground along the bottom of the gorge. There is a river crossing over a mile up the trail. If the river is too high for a crossing, this will be our turn around spot. If the river if crossable, we’ll head a bit further up the trail. South Steens Campground can fill up quickly on weekends in the summer and reservations are not available. Arriving on Friday, August 11 is advisable. Little Blitzen Hike will be on Saturday, August 12. There will be an optional hike/exploration at Riddle Brothers Ranch on August 13.
