Oregon Route 7 is an Oregon state highway which runs from Interstate 84 at Baker City to U.S. Route 26 at Austin Junction. It comprises part of the Baker-Copperfield Highway No. 12, part of the La Grande-Baker Highway No. 66, and the Whitney Highway No. 71 (see Oregon highways and routes). A short spur, Oregon Route 410, serves the city of Sumpter.
OR 7 has its southern terminus at a junction with U.S. Route 26 at the unincorporated locale of Austin Junction. From Austin Junction, it runs roughly northeast, passing near Bates and Austin, and crossing the Middle Fork John Day River. The route continues northeast through the Malheur National Forest until it crosses the North Fork Burnt River and passes into the Wallowa–Whitman National Forest. The road follows the river roughly eastward until it reaches the community of Whitney, where it turns northeast again. South of Sumpter the route crosses the Powder River—in an area covered with gold dredge tailings—and forms a junction with Oregon Route 410. OR 7 continues southeast along the Powder River and passes Phillips Lake, an impoundment of the river dating from 1968. At its junction with Oregon Route 245 at Salisbury, the route veers north as it continues to follow the river, terminating in Baker City at an interchange with I-84.
