Other Names

Milican ODOT Pit, North Millican Valley OHV Trail System, South Millican Valley OHV Trail System

Last Known StatusOpen

This is another huge area, but primitive camping is permitted so you can stay awhile. The area consists of four sections:

(1) Milican ODOT Pit is open year round and has gravel mounds and a beginners loop sections that is fenced off. Trucks and other 4WDs are not permitted in the pit area and the area gets pretty dry and dusty during the summer.

(2) Milican Plateau is open year-round and consists of sandy trails with sagebrush/juniper vegetation.

(3) North Millican is open May 1 through November 30 and offers a large cinder pit/play area.

(4) South Millican is located on an ancient lakebed and terrain is mainly flat with some rolling hills. The trails are sandy but are well marked and is seasonally open August 1 through November 30.
