Fall along the Elkhorn Scenic Byway in Baker County Oregon

The Elkhorn Scenic Byway is one of three Oregon scenic byways that connect in Baker County and is a spectacular scenic loop passing through the historic towns of Haines, Granite, Sumpter and Baker City as it meanders through the majestic Elkhorn Mountain range.

The Elkhorn Scenic Byway offers unparallel wildlife watching and nature viewing opportunities, and access to some of the region’s most significant Gold Rush heritage sites including the Sumpter Dredge State Heritage Area, the restored Sumpter Valley Railroad, the Ghost Town of Granite, and the historic community of Haines where visitors can learn more about the region’s history at the Eastern Oregon Museum.

In the winter the road closes between Granite and Anthony Lakes Ski area and the area becomes a winter playground for skiers at Anthony Lakes and snowmobilers near the towns of Sumpter and Granite.
