The Cascade Lake Highway starts in Bend Oregon and continues on a 87-mile loop that leads past Mt. Bachelor and the alpine lakes of Central Oregon, with spectacular panoramas, 150 lakes, inviting stops and many campgrounds along the way. Designated a National Scenic Byway by the U.S.D.A. Forest Service, the drive is open all summer.
The Byway passes through the heart of central Oregon, with the towering Cascade Mountains providing a constant backdrop for a recreational paradise that offers first class fishing, boating, hiking, rock climbing opportunities and wonderful alpine and Nordic skiing in the winter. The mountains provide practical as well as scenic pleasures; they block moist air from the Pacific, giving this region as many as 250 sunny days a year!
