HWY 242 CLOSED FOR THE SEASON This challenging 38 mile (61.16 km) route is a spectacular ride over the McKenzie Pass. Ascend through meadows, ponderosa pine forests and 2,000-year-old lava flows before descending into dense, verdant forests and the McKenzie River. Not plowed or sanded in the winter, HWY 242 closes to vehicles from November until late June. Prior to gates being reopened, this route is enjoyed exclusively by cyclists and hikers. NOTE: The gate on the Belknap side has a very tight side passage, making it nearly impossible for tandems or other large bikes.
