Highlights

Highlight: Succor Creek Road
Succor Creek Road is a mixture of rolling desert grasslands, breathtaking canyons, and agricultural land. Located in eastern Oregon and part of the Bureau of Land Management, Succor Creek Road also runs through the Succor Creek State Natural Area. Coming from the Adrian side, the trail starts alongside sheep ranches that were built and settled by Basque migrants between the 1880s and 1930s. The trail then winds thru the grasslands where you will periodically see free-range cattle grazing. You will then come up by Succor Creek, a burbling stream that drifts beside the road, and cuts through the canyon. Then you will start noticing the rising cliffs and rock formations that are part of Succor Creek State Natural Area. This area is ground zero for rockhounders searching for thundereggs which are designated as Oregon's state rock. Succor Creek Road gradually winds back to rolling grasslands, ending with agricultural land once again. There are a number of offroad trails off this road that are great for exploring during dry weather. Succor Creek Road and Leslie Gulch Road are two great trails to combine for an easy scenic day trip.

I was born and raised in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. Lived in Richmond, Virginia for over 20 years before moving to Idaho in 2017 where I fell in love with the vast open areas in the surrounding mountains and deserts. I am one of the founding members of Idaho Jeep Girls. I also participate with other local offroad clubs on their events and lead trail runs. I love to show people some of the amazing areas in Idaho and Eastern Oregon! I am also a brand ambassador for Rock Slide Engineering, an off-road manufacturer based in Logan, Utah. Whenever I have a free day, you can find my Jeep dawg Zoey and me exploring trails on public lands and visiting the local towns. I feel incredibly lucky and blessed to experience the trails of gorgeous Idaho and Southeastern Oregon! You can follow my adventures on www.facebook.com/rose.meirs.
