Long Creek and Grant County is a land of scenic contrasts - from dramatic geologic formations in the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument to the Malheur National Forest, North Fork John Day Wilderness area, Black Canyon Wilderness area, and the Strawberry Mountain Wilderness area, with sagebrush and juniper, grassy valleys and pine forests, to the many streams, rivers, lakes and hot springs in the area.

MIddle Fork River

Thousands of acres of public land offer camping, backpacking, bicycling, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, swimming, rafting, kayaking, bird hunting, big game hunting, photography, bird watching, fishing, horseback riding, mushroom hunting, berry picking, exploring ghost towns, and scenic driving, just to name a few.

"I just did this loop fully loaded, and it was a wonderful trip. I loved the scenes the roads and especially the people along the way... The ride from Austin Junction up Grant County Road 20 to the Hwy 395 is one the the most beautiful rides I have been on in my 250,000 miles of bicycling. Going to do it again in the near future." - Rand Wright
