Hero: Blowout Reservoir Road
small-sr Icon
Blowout Reservoir Road is the main access road to Jordan Craters, Coffeepot Crater, and the historic Birch Creek Ranch. It begins at the junction of Jordan Craters Road and Lodge Ranch Road, and ends at the junction of Morcum Road and Crater Lake Road. The landscape first begins as a high rolling desert, with free-ranging cattle, and then finally, to the left, the lava fields of Jordan Craters become visible as the road winds along the edge of the lava. The road is mainly flat with occasionally wet weather creek crossings. It is best suited for four-wheel-drive vehicles or vigilant AWD drivers with clearance. This road can easily become impassable after even a quarter-inch of rain.
