Re: McKenzie River Trail

Two of the falls along the trail are Sahalie and Koosha. Both are spectacular. Highway 242 is also a great drive. Have done it several times. Hanks for the reminder of places to revisit.

I think my waterfall shot is Sahalie. Sorry it wasn't better. I was a little wobbly when I got off the bike and didn't head too close to the edge!

Re: McKenzie River Trail

I was up there a couple weeks ago with a group of dualsport riders. Beautiful scenery! And the twisty pavement is fun with knobbies.

Did you ride up the pass? We saw several road bikes doing it.

Re: McKenzie River Trail

Old 242 / McKenzie Pass is a classic road ride to catch just as the snow drifts have been blasted through but before the lower snow gates are open to traffic. There is usually a 3-4 week period where you can ride your bike without any vehicle traffic and it is simply spectacular. Of course it isn't too shabby after the gates open on a moto or anything else sporty for that matter.

Aldercrest - way to get the MRT done! It has been a busy summer and I have yet to ride that this season (or Oakridge, or the NUT... boo).
