McKenzie Pass Scenic Bikeway

McKenzie Pass is without a doubt the most spectacular ride in Central Oregon, showcasing forests on both the east and west sides of the Cascades (they’re different) as well as a lava-rock moonscape at the top that’s unlike anything you’ll probably ever see on a bike ride again.

Bikeway closed due to snow each winter. Route open to motor free traffic as snow melts until mid-June each year. Visit for seasonal openings.
