Ep. 303: Bikepacking the Oregon Outback Trail - Graham Hiemstra

Graham Hiemstra is on the show today to fill us in on bikepacking the Oregon Outback Trail.
From "We think this is hands-down the best bikepacking route in Oregon.  Starting in Klamath Falls near the California border, you get to traverse the entire length of the state on lightly traveled roads including a slice of route’s namesake area – the Oregon Outback – a dusty, remote portion of the state populated primarily by coyotes and rattlesnakes. Expect desolation, extremely limited water and services, and some of the most beautiful riding anywhere.  But don’t expect it to be easy; this is one of our most difficult, committing routes. Highlights include the OC&E Woods Line State Trail, 30 oz. steaks at the Cowboy Dinner Tree, Fort Rock, the Crooked River, the Ochoco Mountains, and amazing views of the Deschutes and Columbia Rivers."

Luke Kloberdanz visits with Curt about his thru hike of the Ice Age National Scenic Trail, a thousand-mile footpath that highlights these landscape features as it travels through some of the state’s most beautiful natural areas. The Trail is entirely within Wisconsin and is one of only eleven National Scenic Trails.
But the Ice Age Trail is more than a path through the woods. It is a place for mental and physical rejuvenation, a place to unwind after a hard day and enjoy the landscape of Wisconsin. More than 1 million people use the Ice Age Trail each year to hike and snowshoe, to backpack, to disconnect and reconnect.
Behind the scenes, a vibrant community of volunteers across the state work to build and maintain the Trail, making it one of the country’s best hiking experiences.
