Trail Information

Highlights

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.

Anytime I've been asked to recommend an easy scenic trip that is not too far from the Boise area, I always recommend Succor Creek Road. I love the rock formations and it is easy to access year round in all seasons. Succor Creek is great to combine with Leslie Gulch Road for a wonderful scenic day trip.
