re: NF-46 road closure, Mt Hood. Sierra Cascades SC02_20210201 digital data. (I dont have the maps). SC02 covers the route from the Columbia River south past Mt Hood through Sisters, OR.

Forest Road NF-46 has been closed, possibly through 2022, owing to the intense forest fires that had swept through the region in 2020. There are heavy fines for entering this area. NF-46 is the only way to reach the town of Detroit, OR, from the N.
See my blog under the Day 19 headings "Route Description" and "Other Notes" for details and useful USFS URLs.

Here's a link to a paved detour around the closures. This 91.9-mile paved route begins on map 22, and uses US 26, US 97, and smaller county roads to rejoin the main route east of Sisters on map 26.
