Morcum Road is a gorgeous scenic drive descending from rolling high desert outback to a challenging grade headed to the Owyhee River with 180-degree breathtaking views of buttes, cliffs, mountains, and rock formations. As you reach the Owyhee River, you can find petroglyphs, an old homestead called Hole in the Ground, and the old Owyhee rock dam remnants. 4WD with high clearance is highly recommended for this trail due to the steepness of the grade and rocky terrain. Do not attempt the trail when it is wet. There are some flat spots by the river for dispersed camping, but be sure to abide by the signs showing Wilderness Study Areas where motorized vehicles are prohibited. You can access Morcum Road from Blowout Reservoir Road and Crater Lake Road.
