Virtue Flat OHV Area

Tuesday, November 29, 2016

Alt Names

Baker Field Office, Reckles Creek Loop, Elkhorn Mountains, Wallowa Mountains

Last Known StatusOpen

Located near Baker City, Oregon, this high desert area offers nearly 5,000 acres of multiple use trails. The main staging area offers plenty of flat and spacious room and has a kiosk with maps, restrooms and loading ramps.

The terrain is a mix of hardpacked and rocky trails, a play area and hill climbs. During the summer months trails can get very dry and dusty so the best time to visit is after a rainfall or during the spring and fall months. Camping is permitted but is primitive so come prepared.
