Map Updates and Corrections (Addenda)

Updates to Recently Released Maps

If you are planning a bike tour, be sure to get the most recent map updates and corrections for your route by selecting the route, and the appropriate section(s), from the drop-down menu below.

Over time maps become less useful because things change. Every year Adventure Cycling's Routes and Mapping Department create map updates and corrections for every map in the Adventure Cycling Route Network, which now totals 52,066 miles. With the help of touring cyclists like you, we receive updates on routing, services, camping, and contact information. Until we can reprint the map with the new information, we verify the suggested changes and publish corrections and updates here on our website.

PLEASE NOTE: Covid has been particularly hard on the small businesses along our routes. While we do our best to keep the maps and these online updates current, you may encounter more closed businesses and longer stretches with limited or no services.

Refer to these updates for the most current information we have and submit reports of changes to the Route Feedback Form for the cyclists coming after you.

NOTE: Map updates and corrections only pertain to long term changes and updates. For short term road closures, please see the Adventure Cycling's Routes Temporary Road Closures discussion in our Forums.

Section Information

(Sep 2023) UPDATE: As of September 2023, Forest Road 46 and 42 have reopened, making the re-route posted below unnecessary. Also, Breitenbush USFS Campground has reopened.

(Jun 2021) In late August and September 2020, the Lionshead and Beachie Creek wildfires roared through the Mt. Hood and Willamette National Forests north of Detroit, Oregon. Beginning in September 2020 Forest Roads 42 and 46 were closed due to downed trees, deadfall, and hazardous road conditions. The National Forests are keeping these roads closed to all traffic through 2021, and possibly through 2022.
Here is a detour around the closures: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/36518952 This 91.9-mile paved route begins on map 22, and uses US 26, US 97, and smaller county roads to rejoin the main route east of Sisters at the intersection of SR 126 and Cloverdale Rd. on map 26.

(Feb. 2021) NOTE: The Windigo Pass Alternate has been deleted due to many complaints about gravel/sand/washboarded road conditions. We added the McKenzie Pass Alternate which follows paved state highways. It is more scenic than riding over Santiam Pass, has less traffic, and offers a great view at the top of the pass in all directions.
