This Loop takes you back in time on amazing roads through the Ochoco Mountains, along the John Day River to the Fossil Beds, where dinosaurs once roamed, and on to John Day, where lunch can be had. Head south to some wonderful uphill curves on Highway 397, and in too few miles you’ll turn west toward Paulina. Not to fear, however, because you are now on the famed Post-Paulina Road, full of fast sweepers, some tight curves and great visibility. Watch out for a bit of gravel hear and there, and a few potholes to test your targeting skills. You are in the country after all, and the ride is beautiful. Stop off in Bend at a number of great brew-pubs.
