A proposed ATV access route designation would allow ATVs on a 1¼ mile segment of Sumpter Highway No. 410, located in the town of Sumpter, west of Baker City.

The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department’s (OPRD) All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV) Highway Access Routes Advisory Committee is soliciting public comments on the stretch that runs from approximately Cracker Creek Road to Sawmill Gulch Road (from milepost 0.0 to 1.18). If designated, the segment would provide ATV access to local businesses as well as Umatilla National Forest lands to the north and south of Sumpter.

Members of the public may submit comments about the proposed designation through Oct. 4; send comments via email to: ATV.highway@oregon.gov

A public conference call/webinar is scheduled for 6 – 7 p.m. Sep. 29, 2020 and will feature an overview of the proposed access route along with more information about the ATV Highway Access Routes program.
