Hero: C700
small-sr Icon

C700 is accessed off Adler Creek Road, south of Oreana, Idaho. The early section of the trail is relatively smooth and easy through a series of gullies. The trail drops off the high plateau about midway, winding down a long, steep ridge with tight turns. The ridge has spectacular vistas of the Sawtooth Mountains to the north and deep canyons. After about 6.4 miles, the trail enters private property, although there is no fence or signage. At that point, out of respect for the landowners, it’s best to turn around and find another trail to get back to Adler Creek Road or wherever your front bumper leads you!

This trail has a maximum of 18 degrees of pitch and 15 degrees of roll. 4WD, good tires, and good ground clearance are a must. C700 is a fun road to drive, with just enough challenges to make it exciting but not scary.

Dispersed camping is allowed in the area, and there are several likely spots to set up camp.

Owyhee County in Southwest Idaho has over 5000 square miles of desert, canyons, and mountains. There are no services in the entire area, and cell coverage is spotty. Being adequately prepared for almost any contingency is a must. Because there are multitudes of crisscrossing trails, a good navigation system, a backup system, and the knowledge to use them is a must.
