Named for its nearby, now unused corral, the staging area provides year-round access to the Millican Plateau off-highway vehicle (OHV) trail system. A handful of trails converge at this lightly used location where one can lunch or disperse camp among picnic tables and fire rings scattered about the area. Camping is allowed however, no restroom facilities or water are available.
Know Before You Go:
Campfires are permitted, but please keep them small and don’t leave them unattended. High winds and dry conditions can fuel a wildfire even at unlikely times of the year.
Spark arrestors are required on your OHVs, year around and on chainsaws, and generators from April 1 to October 31.
Millican Plateau is open year-round. North Millican and South Millican have seasonal closures.
The Millican Plateau area is remote and visitors should be equipped to be self-sufficient. Riders should wear appropriate safety gear, carry a first aid kit, and never ride alone. Most Forest Service and BLM personnel have radios and can give assistance. There is a cellular phone repeater on Grizzly Mountain and coverage is fair for most of the area.
Point of Interest:
The nearby high-voltage power lines service roads double as OHV trails-follow them as they cross the area. These transmission lines deliver hydroelectric generated energy at the Columbia River to the large markets of California.
