Scenic Drives

You can see a lot of Oregon from behind the wheel of a car.

Oregon’s roads showcase the state’s grandeur. The ability to access Oregon’s diverse natural beauty, as well as historical and cultural sites, has earned it 29 designated Scenic Byways and Tour Routes. On some byways, you’ll drive from the high desert to snowcapped peaks to verdant valleys in one go. You’ll experience the breathtaking views of Hells Canyon, Crater Lake, the Columbia River Gorge and Pacific coastline.

While you’re enjoying these scenic byways, please remember to drive with care as you are sharing the roads with bicyclists, farm equipment and wildlife.

So go ahead — sit back, relax, and enjoy the drive. After all, the journey is more than half the fun.
