Sierra Cascades Section 2 Continuing road closures Sept. 2022
« on: September 23, 2022, 01:28:11 pm »
The Cascade Lakes scenic byway is completely closed, due to work in progress after wildfires, from Bend till crescent cutoff. You have to cycle about 65 miles on the 97, which is hell on earth. Take care!

This closure has been posted several times in earlier posts.

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.

Got that. If we had known that before, it would have saved us about 50 kms of detour.
But the route on ridewithgps shows a different detour, from Detroit northeast bound. We cycled that one, the closure starts about 8 kms after Detroit, and lasts about 6 kms till the top, but, as being told by locals, only for cars. We even saw 2 motorcycles coming across.
