Sourdough Camp Professional Review and Guide
"At the end of a long, bone-jarring, amazingly scenic road, is a spectacular river confluence in one of Oregon’s most remote locations. The road is steep only in a few spots, but it’s rocky, rutted, and can get muddy. To prevent erosion, the last 4 miles have deep waterbars."
--Art Bernstein, Oregon Byways (Wilderness Press).
It was a beautiful sunny day as we headed out from O'brien. On our way to Sourdough Camp, we took a detour up road 112 to Biscuit Hill to survey the damage from the Biscuit Fire. AMAZING view! The road from here turned quite bumpy but in good shape. We stopped at the Diamond Creek bridge to take a look around. As we continued on, we went from burn to green and back. As we reached the junction of road 206, the road got steep and narrower with limited turn outs. Fortunatly the camp didn't burn and was still green and lush. We swam in the river and had lunch before heading back. When we got back to 4402 we decided to keep going west to the beach. All in all it was a vary good day and we had a bast. Maybe next season we'll go back via McGrew trail. Can't wait!
Extremely rocky, bypasses around 3 extremely rough areas. Vehicles were jeeps, toyota pickups and four runner. Some with lockers in rear only, others with open diffs. Great views, 3.5 miles into trail you start to border the Biscuit fire from 4 years ago. At 4.3 mile mark trail is easy because of trail being cut by fire dozer, gets dusty at this point also. Temp dropped about 10 degrees when mountain was peaked. Camping was great, never saw another vehicle. Saw bear and coyote droppings on trail. Come prepared.
