BLM Back Country Byways in Oregon

Backcountry Byways showcase the variety and richness of the Northwest's public lands off-the-beaten track. Most of the byways are either paved or graded gravel and dirt roads, passable in ordinary passenger cars. Others are safely driven only in a high-clearance truck or 4-wheel drive vehicle.
