NOTE: The real-world elevation isn’t nearly as intense as MMR makes it look.
Grab your mountain bike or fat-tire bike and get onto (mostly) gravel for this outnback route spanning the entire length of the Lyre River, from Lake Crescent to the strait, via a quiet logging road and the gorgeous Lyre Conservation Area.
