A popular sight seeing, camping, hiking, fishing, boating, and off road recreational area in eastern Oregon. The towering rock structures of Succor Creek Canyon rise above prime riparian habitat and rock-hounding grounds. Leslie Gulch is a strikingly beautiful vastness of volcanic tuff towers. This is a picturesque place where wind, water, and time have created spectacular panoramas of unusually sculpted colorful conical towers, honeycombed pinnacles, and intricate multiple layered spires. Succor Creek and Leslie Gulch provide opportunities for hiking, photography, camping, picnicking, wildlife viewing, bird watching, off-roading, boating, and rock hounding. Look for chukars or thundereggs. The rugged canyons and rock formations of Leslie Gulch and Succor Creek are home to a population of California bighorn sheep. Depending on the season's precipitation, this area is usually open by the middle of April through November. The elevations in the area range from around 2600' in the canyons to about 4400' on the ridges.
