Overview

The byway follows OR-7 through ranch lands, turning west along the Powder River.This byway packs plenty of sights into a 106-mile loop through the mountains west of Baker City, long the lucrative hunting grounds of the Plateau Indian tribes where miners came to seek their fortunes. It threads through the basalt Blue Canyon and enters the Wallowa Whitman National Forest, where grasslands and juniper hills give way to ponderosa pine forest.
