Central Oregon sits in the middle of the State on the east side of the Cascade Range. The roads leading to the region take you through scenic mountain passes and high desert terrain. US Highway 97 (a north and south route from Madras to Klamath Falls), and State Highway 20 (the east and west route from Idaho/Burns to Salem/Willamette Valley) are the two most vital roads which provide access to the area. These access roads are paved highways with a posted speed limit of 55 miles per hour.

About Central Oregon:
So here’s a little geography lesson: Oregon is divided right down the middle, by the Cascade Mountain Range. On the western side you have the Pacific Coast and the wet, green Oregon you probably imagine. On the east side of the mountains it’s a different world altogether. Here, the average annual rainfall is only 12 inches. (That’s less than L.A.) You have year-round access to the mountains, lakes, and rivers, as well as the desert of Eastern Oregon. And it’s all within easy reach of six major cities.
In the middle of it all sits Bend, the most populated city in the region. Other key towns that make up this vast geographical area are: Crooked River Ranch, La Pine, Madras, Maupin, Powell Butte, Prineville, Redmond, Sisters, Sunriver, and Warm Springs.
