John Day Fossil Beds Classic

Loop • 118.4 mi • 0 ft

This challenging two-day tour climbs more than 3,000 feet and takes you through the center of two magnificent river canyons in northeast Oregon: the John Day and the North Fork of the John Day. Dramatic canyon scenery, smooth-flowing rivers, and small, friendly towns make this tour one of a kind. As an added bonus, you’ll pedal through John Day Fossil Beds National Monument, a fantastic geologic wonder that has encapsulated the fossilized remains of plants and animals from millions of years ago.
