The ride is 22.7 miles long; a 15.7 mile loop and an out-and-back spur of 7 miles. There are no long, steep hills on the ride, but rated as difficult. It is a long, exposed ride with many ups and downs over rough roads. Staying oriented is another challenging aspect of this ride. There are few landmarks and getting lost is a distinct possibility, especially for those who are less adept at route-finding. Located just east of Rome, Oregon. Rome is a remote outpost in the southeastern Oregon desert. The town is on US 95, about 13 miles east of the intersection of US 95 and OR 78.
