June 20 @ 6:00 am - 5:00 pm

Rugged | Remote | Adventure

Roll out starts at 6 am for 120 riders, with 60 & 30 riders taking off at 7 & 8 am respectively. Arrive 30 min. early for registration & welcome.

Harney County is home to endless opportunity for the self-sufficient backcountry traveler. Visitors who seek challenge and solitude will find these in abundance.

The West’s premiere endurance gravel event, the Skull 120/60/30 Gravel Grind route highlights the rugged character that sets rural #EasternOregon apart. From long mountainous ascents, to teeth-chattering and eye watering descents, breathtaking vistas, open rangeland, alpine forests, multiple stream crossings, and – of course – cattle guard after cattle guard, this gravel grind is a feat to finish and a testament to the rider’s grit and determination.

Routes traverse miles of Bureau of Land Management and US Forest Service public lands, official partners of the Skull 120/60/30.
