Oregon Buttes Professional Review and Guide
"The Oregon Buttes are made up of steep cliffs surrounded by sagebrush prairie. Named by settlers traveling the Oregon Trail, this desert sentinel was a welcome landmark to pioneers because it marked the halfway point on their journey to the West Coast. Petrified wood is abundant here, indicating that the area wasn’t always just sagebrush and greasewood.This ride begins on a county road and then heads across the desert on doubletrack roads. Alternate roads criss-cross the desert, offering exploration opportunities. This route has mostly rolling and easy terrain until the northwest and northern segments, where the route climbs along the edge of Oregon Buttes. Be sure to carry enough water to last the entire trip. There are a couple of sources of water on the route but their reliability as the summer progresses is difficult to predict."
