In my opinion, there are, generally, good shoulders. To me, the traffic is light. That is a truck route to Central Oregon so it seemed there were more trucks, but again, not an issue for me. Others may differ. Is your final destination Burns?

Looks like about 3/4 of it has a shoulder 4 feet or wider. The twisty section from Juntura to Harper does not.

You can view the shoulders on Google street view.

The AADT varies along the route, but is about 1200 when away from the cities (e.g., 0.5 miles east of Pole Creek Road, which is about in the middle of this segment).

See "CENTRAL OREGON HIGHWAY NO. 7".

1200 is also the AADT given on row 45 of the following spreadsheet.
