Has anyone done this road this year? I've heard good reports on it, even tried it a few years, got to Joseph and found out it was closed due to washouts.
If it's open, what is the road surface like?
I'm heading down that way in a few days, probably stopping in Baker City first.

Here's a link to the most recent information on FS39 (Hells Canyon Scenic Byway). https://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/wallowa-whitman/alerts-notices/?cid=stelprdb5295221


After being closed or partially closed for two years, FS39 reopened last season. The road should be in good shape, as a large portion of it was repaved.

I have ridden the road a couple of times but not recently.

Be very careful when crossing the cattle guards. I had a buddy try to maneuver while it was wet and went down and hurt his hip.

Great road and scenery. Lots of Wildlife.
