The McKenzie River National Scenic Trail will temporarily close between Trail Bridge reservoir to Tamolitch Falls (Blue Pool) June 15-18, 2020 for maintenance. This easy 26.5 mile (43 km) trail parallels the scenic McKenzie River, gaining 1,750 ft (525 m) as it passes through many contrasting environments: lava beds, lakes, reservoirs, waterfalls, cold-water creeks and dense old-growth forests. Eleven clearly marked trailheads provide access from Hwy 126. The lower trailhead is approximately 56 miles (90 km) from Eugene and at an elevation of 1,450 ft (435 m). No permit is needed, and the lower half is great for kids.
