88 mi.

I wouldn't have believed desert canyons, arid buttes, rolling rangeland, alpine mountain ridges, lush forests & scenic river valleys could all be crammed into a ride less than 100 miles long prior to exploring this little known part of Oregon.

The South Fork John Day River & Aldrich Mountain Range are often overlooked gems in this sleepy corner of Oregon.

... Did I mention there are two rentable backcountry Forest Service Cabins along the way?
