Owyhee Uplands Backcountry Byway

The Byway is 103 miles long and consists of gravel and paved roads that are suitable for passenger vehicles. This region provides access to one of the best remaining examples of the sagebrush-steppe ecosystem and habitat for more than 180 species of birds and mammals such as coyotes, bighorn sheep and badgers. The area’s scenic geology is composed of rhyolite, a volcanic rock, deposited 8-12 million years ago.

Directions: Endpoints are located 60 miles southeast of Boise in Grandview, Idaho and 80 miles southwest of Boise in Jordan Valley, Oregon.
