Hmmm

To be fair, the snowy pic was over a Mt Hood pass, a long ways from the Crooked River. But...ya just never know. And you just can't lose, it'll still be fun, even if we're all cuddled up in one trailer to escape it

yeah, but the riding does not suck here....and WE'RE here.
Top that
You guys have the better ride TOO the campground. From Bend it's Mehhh.
Y'all are just scratching the surface of the goods out there! It's too bad Roberts Rd is closed till April.
I'll go if some FF's will follow me out to Hampton for a burger. It's a good loop around Glass Butte [with a hill climb up the back side that Punkin can make up]from there, then back to camp via GI Ranch.


No road, but there IS a way to the top from here!

IN! Blindly even.
Don't know where that is, don't know how rough your route is, I'll just assume it's not a classic big bike ride (too many miles) since you're on an XR. Sounds perfect

Still wanna ride out that Ford Road I've seen many of you post to get there, but if maybe Trout Creek is open of snow through the upper Ochoco (doubtful) I would have to do that.

As you can see, I was already IN, even before you edited your post to make sure Punkin was welcome. I'll take any opportunity to follow a local around

It's a mix. Only real choice to highway 20 is big gravel roads, but once we cross, well, it's mostly desert 2 track!
There is great riding in the Maury and Ochocos, but they are usually still covered with snow as you know. South of Highway 20 is where it's at that time of year. None of that gloppy clay, just nice pumice!

Edit: It is a full days ride. But starts and ends with big gravel roads. I'll map out the route with mileage this spring. Perfect excuse to get out there! (Like I need one)
Fuel will most likely have to be arranged, but that's no big deal.

I like what I'm seeing about 2-track.
Fuel? Meh. Not an issue for Punkin if I know ahead of time and fill. 300 miles has been my worst range workin it hardest on dirt. 400 miles on a 55 mph hiway.

Supertanker!

If I'd have to guess I'd say the mileage is around 200. My XR has around a 225 range. Hampton Station is good about having some cans of fuel if I call ahead for those that may need it. Work all that out come March. Who knows, the hills could be snow free by then!

New guy here

Question. Is this open to new people? Are there some good rides that are intermediate level?

I am riding a 1999 KLR 250 with Anakee 3's(80% street). I have about 10K miles riding on 3 dual sports but that's 95% street riding.

I love camping, so that part seems fine.

I have about 250 miles range. Are there fueling stations within the area?
