Mt. Harris and Mt. Harris Loop

Home » Birding Locations » Union County » Elgin/imbler Area




Mt. Harris is about 4 miles East of Imbler in Central Union County. From the north end of Imbler, take Striker Lane east for 2 miles. Striker ends at Gray’s Corner Road. Across Gray’s Corner, look for Mt. Harris Loop Road. This road loops around Mt. Harris and provides nice birding near the Wallowa Whitman National Forest. To access the summit of Mt. Harris, look for a road to the right about 0.33 miles from Gray’s Corner and Mt. Harris Loop.


Habitat and Birds

This loop consists mostly of mixed conifer forest. A morning drive in the spring, summer, or fall will produce many of the local forest species and one could find Spruce Grouse, Ruffed Grouse, Dusky Grouse, and Pine Grosbeak (very rare but have been found here). Barred Owls have been reported here.
