This ride offers a look at the amazing geology of this portion of Central/Eastern Oregon. Starting in Fossil, you’ll ride through alpine forests, rolling ranchland and rocky river canyons, passing through Service Creek and near Mitchell. It’s a great adjunct to a visit to one of the three units of the John Day Fossil Beds. And don’t forget to stop by the hill up behind the high school to dig for your own fossils while you’re in Fossil!
