Location

Some of this road is very primitive (especially Ant Flat Road) so 4-wheel drive is advised and you should avoid it all together on deep snow years. From the center of Enterprise, take North Street all the way to the east edge of town and turn north on 4th Street. Go five blocks and then 4th veers to the east and becomes Chico Road. Chico soon becomes Ant Flat Road and goes straight north for 7.2 miles until it meets up with Hwy 3. You can take Hwy 3 back to Enterprise or take it north into the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest (It’s about 35 miles from this location to the Washington border).
