Blitzen River Trail

View Topo Map


The Blitzen River Trail takes off from the southern tip of Page Springs Campground at the base of Steens Mountain. The trail follows the Donner und Blitzen Wild & Scenic River upstream to its junction with Fish Creek. The trail itself receives limited maintenance, so expect a variety of conditions ranging from rocky slopes to thick brush to dusty foot paths...and the occasional river crossing when conditions allow (beginning mid-summer). The Blitzen River Trail affords many wonderful fishing spots and stops along the way. If you do fish, please 'catch and release' the beautiful Redband Trout so as to preserve this unique species. Many birds and wildlife are in the canyon - be on the lookout for deer, antelope, cougar and especially the western rattlesnake. If overnight backpacking is in your plan, there are many established primitive camp sites within the canyon.
