East Steens Road is the main access road into the surreal Alvord Desert Playa. East Steen's skirts along the eastern escarpment of Steens Mountain and the vast expanses of the Alvord Desert provide a scenic study in dramatic contrasts. Bighorn sheep and pronghorn antelope can be seen adjacent to the road with binoculars. East Steens is also the access to Mickey Alvord Wells that goes to Mickey Hot Springs. There is no camping along East Steens Road, but spurs and access roads from the road offer great camping sites.
