I approached Hart Mountain from the west (Lakeview, Oregon) and glad I did. The road is fully paved until you get right to the western side of the refuge. Along the way, you will pass high plains, and wetlands areas with plenty of wildlife, and...More

Not much to see and ended up doing gravel for 67 miles from Frechglen direction. Nice view on the Plush end. Didn't see any antelopes even though on a motorcycle

This is a pretty isolated refuge that we cut through when travelling between Malheur Wildlife Refuge and Lakeview, where we stayed. The roads are fairly good if unpaved, so plan accordingly. We did see antelope several times, so there is truth in advertising. The eastern...More

This place is great but the roads are awful, worst I have every seen. The washboarding will shake your car apart. Congress needs to fund natural resource management commensurate with its value but in the meantime the unit could reprioritize activities and make the place...More
