CLOSED DUE TO COVID-19
As of March 23, 2020, climbing on the Maple Bridge is closed, due to the Governor’s Executive Order 20-12, since it is considered playground equipment.
ABOUT THE BRIDGE
Maple Avenue Bridge is a 70 foot tall and 780 foot long concrete bridge located in Redmond Oregon. It was constructed in 2007 with three 210 foot arch spans. In July of 2015, the first climbing routes began getting developed. There are 8 arches which climbing may be developed on(under).
The bridge spans over the Dry Canyon which runs the length of Redmond. The Deschutes River was located here many years ago, but shifted channels to the west. The floor of the canyon is dirt, grass, sagebrush and junipers. There is a paved pedestrian/bicycle path. The character of the natural canyon and the flat canyon floor makes it a great place for climbing. The approach is very short, since you can park about 100 feet from the east side of the bridge.
