Over the Cascades- Oregon

Read somewhere there is a trail over the Cascades up out of Seattle. Uses forest service roads, logging roads etc to make it all the way.

Anyone find anything like that in Oregon?

Figure it would be a two/three day trip, summer only.

But wow, wouldn't it be cool to cross the Cascades in a Jeep!!!

I don't know anything about the trail, but I will be heading down to Bend in a few days. What trails are there in the Bend area?


Thanks

Here are some trail maps.

If you do Geocaching, this one is very good.

Mostly I look around for a butte and just follow forest roads till I get there or get lost!

I'm sure you will enjoy your visit, this is a great place, don't forget your fly pole!

Check out:

I think there used to be a cross-cascades route, but I don't see it on the list anymore. There may have been some changes to the route (like new gates). Keep an eye on the site. They add a new one every once in a while.

Thinking of ordering the Route 3 from OOHVA, thanks for the lead. Figure I could find a way from Sunriver area to the route and explore it a bit looking for a way west. Would make a great Quest for summer Jeeping!
