In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions.

Black Butte is an extinct stratovolcano that, despite its appearance, is significantly older than the nearby Mount Washington. The butte is located about 5.5 miles west of Sisters in the Deschutes National Forest. Its cider cone stands 6,436 feet tall.
The butte is off the McKenzie Pass-Santiam Pass Scenic Byway.
