  • Welcome to the New Scenic Byways Web Site
    The Oregon Scenic Byways Program was created as an opportunity for Oregon to take advantage of the national program defined in ISTEA. The Program provides an "umbrella" to include various federal, state, city and county defined scenic roads and highways.

    The Oregon Scenic Byways Program crosses jurisdictional boundaries and establishes uniform - criteria - consistent signage and statewide promotion. This program also offers an opportunity to preserve and enhance Oregon's most scenic corridors while ensuring the transportation function is protected.

Hells Canyon Scenic Byway Open For Business
A small portion of the beautiful Hells Canyon Scenic Byway loop in northeastern Oregon will be closed for repair due to a washout. Heavy rains in the spring of 2010 closed Forest Road 39 approximately 1.4 miles north of State Highway 86.  The available detour will be Forest Service road 66, weather permitting.

The washout affected only the Wallowa Mountain Loop section of the 218-mile Byway; three other segments remain open and offer visitors rich cultural and recreational experiences while the damaged section is repaired.
