Oregon Scenic Bikeways

I'm curious if anyone knows the route of the Sisters to Smith Rock State Park route as proposed as a new Scenic Bikeway.

Read it here

It says this ride is a 44 mile linear route. Now, I've ridden between these two places a few times, and It's never near that long. Does anyone know the route used for this?

Google is letting me down here.

A quick mapping shows it to be ~40km, maybe that's what they meant? It could also be 44 miles round-trip (22mi each way). I assume they take the McKenzie Hwy East and then through some backroads to avoid downtown Redmond.

I live here in bend and have ridden all these roads. I have not seen a map but if they are looking at making it 44 miles, this is the most likely route of that distance. I guess we will see. https://www.mapmyride.com/route/us/or...28622075936892 Hope this helps.

Ahh... I forgot about that little dip south onto Cloverdale and Fryrear roads. I bet that's it.
