Day 6 – September 13: Crane to Seneca
“Turn it Up Again” (74 miles)
Start your day by bee-lining through the Harney Valley, before a quick jog on Highway 20 that involves a bit of climb. Then it’s back north for a tremendous glide down to Pine Creek; now you’re on the western edge of the Great Basin. Turn left at Wolf Creek for a long stretch of bike pushups: up, down, up, down, up, and finally a satisfying long down, to the Silvies Valley. The return to Seneca is mostly flat and nicely familiar, including the winding Silvies River canyon.
