Location

CAUTION: DO NOT DRIVE THIS ROAD DURING OR AFTER RAIN. THE MUD WILL EAT YOU!! IT’S NOT AS BAD AS THE LITTLE WILLOW CR. ROAD BUT…

From the corner of Hwy 97 and B St. in Madras, head east. This road will eventually become the Ashwood Road and will turn to gravel after the prison (You can make a nice detour south at the prison entrance to an area of nice springs but the road is not great). From the prison entrance, go east for 6.4 miles to a junction at the Hay Creek Ranch. Continue south toward the ranch house. From Hay Creek Ranch go 1.7 miles south to the reservoir.

Habitat and Birds

This road weaves through grassland, juniper and sage as well as some farmland. The reservoir is one of the largest bodies of water in the county and can be good for fall and spring waterfowl.  Shorebirds are present in small numbers in the fall.
