Harney country Oregon is larger than new Hampshire, but only has 7300 residents. That means it has a lot of dirt roads for mountain biking, and wouldn't mind some tourism

Billed as “America’s gnarliest gravel race,” the route takes advantage of remote dirt roads and goat tracks to lead riders on a memorable adventure in the Malheur National Forest northwest of Burns.

Eastern Oregon’s vast high desert country is an adventure cyclist’s dream, with a network of thousands of miles of remote, traffic-free, interconnected roads, paths, and primitive trails circulating through almost 5 million acres of public lands

The route traverses virtually every type of terrain a backcountry bike racer could ask for: down washboard roads snaking through forest; over desert jeep trails gently curving toward the horizon; through small rock gardens and dry stream beds; past spring fed wetlands and over vacant coyote dens; through nearly three dozen cattle guards and two stream crossings
