Travel 17.6 miles north of Madras on Hwy 97. This location is 23 miles south of Maupin and 70 miles south of the Columbia River at Biggs Junction. The Cow Canyon Rest Area is about 2 miles to the north.

Habitat and Birds

This area is under-birded because it is next to Hwy 97 and most people don’t stop. There are pockets of oak trees here that could harbor migrants and local nesters.
