Over the River and Through the Woods Scenic Byway

Overview

Travelers get a sampling of Oregon’s diversity along this byway, climbing through five ecosystems on its route from the Willamette Valley to the West Cascade Mountains. The grassy fields outside Brownsville attract large numbers of tundra swans and bald eagles each winter. The byway follows OR-228 toward Crawfordsville, where the 105-foot 2 Crawfordsville Covered Bridge, built in 1932, spans the Calapooia River. Near the small logging town of Holley, which dates back to 1847, the byway bends north toward Sweet Home and meets US-20.
