Iron Creek Oil Field

Iron Creek Oil Field

Natrona County Road 319, the Oregon Trail Road, passes through the Iron Creek Oil Field, which is the only oil field along the road. Oil Mountain is the prominent anticline on the west side of the road. The grease trade was in this general area. The oil seep is some miles to the northwest, and is inaccessible without crossing private land.
