Whites Valley is agricultural land and shrubsteppe northeast of I-15 between Tremonton and the Idaho Border. The land is all privately held, but the roads cutting across them are open to the public. The habitat here is the southern extent of the typical agricultural and shrubsteppe habitats found throughout Idaho. Please do no walk off the roads and into any of the private property.
Whites Valley has long been the go to spot in Utah to get both SHARP-TAILED GROUSE and GRAY PARTRIDGE in the same day. There are several locations like this on the northern fringe in Utah, but Whits is the most popular. SHORT-EARED and BURROWING OWL both nest here. During the winter months northern sparrows and songbirds like SNOW BUNTING and LAPLAND LONGSPUR might be present. There have also been COMMON REDPOLL here during their irruption years. During Snowy Owl irruption years this is one of the locations birders often check.
Take I-15 north to I-84 west. Follow I-84 to Ranch Exit 32. Turn right. The pavement ends after .3 miles and the road is gravel thereafter. Continue north. You'll reach Whites Valley after approximately 4 miles. The road zigzags west and north across the valley until it ends at two silos; however, the last half mile is marked, "No Trespassing".
