Round Mountain South Trailhead
The Ochoco's are great for riding in the spring/early summer, the snow melts long before our higher country. It can be muddy if you get there too early.

Directions: To get there: From Prineville, drive 15 miles east on Hwy 26. Take a right at the sign for Walton Lake and Big Summit Prairie. Follow this road for 14 miles, stay to the right where it becomes road 42 ignoring the left turn towards Walton Lake. Watch for the sign for Independent Mine. There is a washed out dirt road that heads uphill, drive up it very briefly and take a left into the large parking area.
