Location

Golf Course Road is on the west end of Enterprise off of Hwy 82. Take this road north for about 10 miles from Enterprise. There are a couple of options that provide a loop back to town. You can take School Flat Road (45.529909, -117.333998) west which will bring you back to Lostine. Or you can take Golf Course a little farther north and take Leap Lane (45.548498, -117.332826) east and end up at Hwy 3 which will take you back to Enterprise. If you can do both, do it.
