Highway 38 and Elkton

Highway 38 is being considered for recognition as an Oregon scenic byway. The state has more scenic routes than any other, for reasons that are apparent to anyone who drives much here. Highway 38 leads from Interstate 5 through Drain, westward to Elkton, where it joins the spur from Sutherlin and continues along the Umpqua River until it reaches Highway 101 in Reedsport.

Elkton has begun to grow. The city has a built a butterfly pavilion and there is an associated art space. Four wineries now operate in the area. Two of them have tasting rooms on the Highway 38 -- Brandborg in "downtown" and Rivers Edge Winery at the western edge. There is also a new subdivision on the hillside above the downtown area. It also has a couple of interesting cafes and an RV park down by the river. I expect Elkton to remain a unique little community even as it grows.
