Dirt road access is likely entertaining at best right now

It rained 0.5 inches in Jordan Valley yesterday.

Look at yesterdays image at Jordan Valley on Trip Check:https://tripcheck.com/Pages/RCMap.asp



If you are looking at going to the upper or middle, good luck with the road. If you are thinking lower Owyhee, Birch Creek Ranch road is usually closed from Dec 1 to Feb 15, so Leslie is your best bet.

I'd be very cautious of the Owyhee at this point, I would imagine lots of ice. In fact I'm not convinced that the gauge readings we're getting aren't affected by ice.
Leslie is your only option for take out on the lower until they open the gate for Birch. I'd double check that the road is open and not snowed in.
