General Information

Description - Oregon offers a multitude of national, state, Bureau of Land Management (BLM), and National Forest byways. These byways include five National Scenic Byways and three All-American Roads - Hells Canyon Scenic Byway, the Historic Columbia River Highway and the Volcanic Legacy Scenic Byway. These All-American Roads possess multiple intrinsic qualities that are nationally significant and contain one-of-a-kind features that do not exist elsewhere. The roads are considered 'destinations unto themselves.'

Recreation - Byways provide access to numerous cultural, historical, natural, recreational and scenic sites. Some of the most popular activities along the byways include hiking, camping, picnicking, biking, fishing, photographing scenery, viewing historic sites and of course scenic driving.

Climate - The climate in Oregon varies by region. The coastal region and west of the Cascades is generally temperate and wet. Temperatures rarely rise above 85 degrees F during the warmest months and rarely dip below freezing during the winter. Along the coast expect rain and wind during the fall, winter and spring months.

The mountains receive heavy precipitation and cool temperatures throughout the year. Conditions become more extreme the higher you climb. If visiting the region during the summer months be prepared for afternoon thunderstorms and chilly evening temperatures. Snow may be encountered on high country trails throughout the summer months.

Eastern Oregon is a high desert. Precipitation received annually accumulates to less than 10 inches of rain. Summer temperatures often reach 90 degrees in the lower elevations. Winters can be bitterly cold here, although there is little humidity.

Location - Byways travel through scenic and historic areas throughout the state.
