This area was unused after the construction of the Ice Harbor Dam, but since 1997 the heart of this remote wildlife area has been restored to native health. The Corps of Engineers has hosted revegetation plantings to restore the native steppe plants to improve the wildlife habitat (and therefore wildlife populations). The route through the area takes advantage of the restoration efforts, exploring the rich foliage and wildlife habitat of the area along the pretty stretch of the Snake River–a section of Lake Sacajawea that is formed by Ice Harbor Dam. The first 2 miles of riding along the road (closed to vehicles) leads directly to the top of the bluff overlooking the area. Wonderful views!
Many thanks to TrailMeister user caroleschuh for sharing a fabulous horse riding area!
Deer hunting and bird hunting are allowed October through January.
