PARTIALLY CLOSED. The northern section by McKenzie River is temporarily closed for geologic survey (May 2021), preventing through traffic to Oakridge. This 60-mile (96.5K) scenic byway, connecting Highways 126 (McKenzie River) and 58 (Oakridge), winds through the lush undergrowth of the majestic Willamette National Forest and meanders along the cold, clear waters of the McKenzie and Willamette Rivers. Popular with cyclists and hikers, the road connects Oakridge / Westfir with the McKenzie River communities. This route is not maintained during the winter, generally from November until April. Also known as Road 19 (a segment of the West Cascades National Scenic Byway).
