This very large riding area is bordered on the west by irrigated farms and on the east by Potholes Reservoir. The country varies from wetlands to sage and sand dunes. It is a beautifully rugged area. If you ride in summer, get an early start before it gets too hot.
12,000 acres of sand dunes, ponds, and sloughs resulting from the Missoula Ice Age Floods of 15,000 – 17,000 years ago. Two abandoned visible negotiable barbed wire fences run north/south one mile east and one mile west of parking lot.
