Experience the beautiful north Warner Mountains and the forest/desert fringe of the Great Basin’s expansive views of Drake Peak, the Coyote Hills, Fish Creek Rim, Hart Mountain Antelope Refuge, Warner Peak, and the Poker Jim Ridge.

Ride along rolling lakeshores to Adel thru the wetland lakes of the Warner Valley including: Hart Lake, Friday Reservoir, Crump Lake, Pelican and the Narrows. Enjoy views of the spectacular escarpment of pronghorn antelope, bighorn sheep, sage grouse, and wetland birds.

While in Deep Creek Canyon, look for cliff swallows, golden & bald eagles, red tail hawks and falcons. Crest Warner Pass and watch the trees whiz by in a blur as you scream down the pass for one last thrill ride as you coast back into Lakeview.
