Cascade Lakes Highway is Now Open!

The Cascade Lakes highway is open for the season.

Good news folks!

The gates to Cascade Lakes Highway were opened today at noon. It is officially summer and all you outdoor enthusiasts can start your season off with a trip to the Cascade Lakes.

However, Deschutes County officials warn those who will be passing through to beware of wet pavement and areas of ice since all of that snow is finally melting off. While summer is steadily approaching remember to keep an eye out for melting, and that not yet melting snow since five to six foot vertical walls of snow still exist on the sides of the roadway and according to Deschutes County, trailheads, campgrounds, and parking areas may still be covered with snow or ice.

And finally, be sure to remember when traveling that way that there are no parking areas available between Mt. Bachelor and Elk Lake. So go out there, enjoy summer and keep an eye out for that still present snow.
