North Fork Malheur River Professional Review and Guide
"This exquisite little drive visits the North Fork of the beautiful Malheur River, which empties into the Snake River at Ontario. The first 56 miles of Highway 20 from Ontario follow the Malheur canyon and river. And a mighty handsome canyon and river they are. At Juntura, the Malheur divides into the North and South forks and the highway leaves them both behind.
The short, easy trip up the North Fork from Juntura follows a beautiful green valley with a large, clear, fast-flowing stream in the middle, hay fields on either side, and grassy, juniper-dotted hills lining the route. Beyond Chukar Park, at mile 6, the valley widens and the river slows a little, forming wide meanders and oxbow lakes."
