BEND, OR -- The road up Pilot Butte opens for the season, Thursday. Oregon Parks and Recreation will open the gate for vehicle traffic at 10 a.m. It closes each day at 8 p.m., but that’s subject to change as the days get longer.
Parks Manager Joe Wanamaker urges drivers to be cautious, "There is heavy pedestrian traffic along the summit road," he said Tuesday in a statement. "We remind drivers to obey the posted 20 mph speed limit, and use caution as they drive around the blind curves. Pedestrians should use either the walking path on the outer edge of the road or the nature trail."
