Joseph Branch Railriders
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. For travel options plus weather and road conditions, visit tripcheck.com, call 511 (in Oregon only), 800.977.6368 or 503.588.2941.

Enjoy the novelty of pedaling down an inactive section of the Historic Joseph Branch Railway in Oregon’s beautiful Wallowa Valley at the base of the Wallowa Mountains. Bicyclists and rail fans are sure to relish the peace and tranquility of the 12-mile round trip from Joseph to Enterprise. Snow-capped peaks form the backdrop as you pedal past green pastures and red barns, through cottonwood and pine trees, and beside bubbling streams. Cattle and horses look up from their grazing. A pair of osprey call to you from their nest. Mule and white-tail deer bound through the grass and hide in the shade. You will be lulled by the sights, smells and silence of the countryside, while invigorated by the fresh air.
