Friends of the Owyhee content!
The desert can be a dangerous place, beyond the Role-playing! Please see our Plan a Trip page for desert hiking / camping tips and tricks. Here are a few high recommendations:
Plenty of water (5 gal in vehicle, each pack at least 1 liter)
Proper clothing for the weather
Proper footwear--shoes or boots instead of open-toe
Leave town with a full tank of gas (or fill up in Ontario, Nyssa, Owyhee Junction, or Homedale) and let someone else know where you are going and when you intend to return
We will make a point to collect garbage at sites, along road, and pack-in / pack-out. This Quest involves such stewardship activities.
Time in the outdoors is special and has a physiologic effect on our bodies, particularly mental health. Fantasy and Role-Playing come natural to children and is most often expressed by playing video games (in our modern world, anyway). This activity is designed to make fun in the outdoors, indulge in fantasy, and connect parents and children. Especially since the onset of the pandemic, our communities children are craving educational fun and fresh air.
Seems Intimidating? We understand! Please contact us to discuss your concerns. The hikes begin as low-impact and give your family time to build your stamina. The routes are not ADHA accessible, unfortunately, modifications can be made for anyone!
Please email for questions!
