Heading to Crater Lake National Park from the northwest, visitors follow along Route 138 through Umpqua National Forest. Here, the highway has garnered three byway designations (national, state, and national forest), securing its status as an elite scenic byway.
As the Rogue-Umpqua Scenic Byway climbs through the Western Cascades, visitors will notice this area is as wild as it is wonderful, accentuated by magnificent mountain peaks and thick forests. Campgrounds and waterfalls liter the highway as it follows the North Umpqua River.
