The 1,460,000 acre Malheur National Forest, located in the
Blue Mountains of Eastern Oregon can be reached by two
major highways - US 26 and US 395. The Forest, most of
which was reserved from public domain in 1908, lies
primarily in Grant and Harney counties, with some area in
Baker and Malheur counties.
The Forest takes its name - Malheur - from the Malheur River
named by an early French trapper whose supplies were stolen.
Today, the River, Forest and County all carry the name.
