This 215-mile (344 km) trip from Estacada to Oakridge is a scenic alternative to Interstate 5. The route takes travelers on Forest Service Road 46 along the Clackamas River through its watershed to Breitenbush Hot Springs. Heading further south, it joins the Aufderheide segment of the West Cascades National Scenic Byway, winding through the Willamette National Forest. This section of road is weather dependant, and typically not maintained from November to April. Drivers will see a splendid overview of the Cascades, lush and green in spring and splendid with color in autumn.
