At 4,700 feet tall, Sutton Mountain towers over the surrounding landscape. With a steep, craggy west side and a rolling, grassy eastern face, the mountain has an alluring Jekyll and Hyde quality.
Sutton Mountain is home to bountiful wildflowers in the spring and vibrant herds of mule deer, wandering pronghorn and golden eagles gliding overhead. Recreational opportunities offer an immersive exploration into the Sutton Mountain backcountry, suiting adventurous thrill-seekers and mellow nature enthusiasts alike.
ONDA has worked with Senator Merkley, the local community and other stakeholders to craft a conservation solution worthy of the area’s incredible diversity of habitats, opportunities for backcountry recreation, paleontological history, archaeological resources, cultural values and more.
