Known for its cold, crystal clear waters the Class II-III McKenzie River hosts whitewater thrill seekers, world class anglers and nature lovers. The McKenzie River is 90 miles (145 km) long and includes a South Fork. More than 12 miles of the upper McKenzie are designated as "Wild and Scenic." Charge Martens Rapid in your kayak, cast for steelhead from a famous McKenzie River Drift Boat, or hike or bike along the riverbank on the McKenzie River National Recreation Trail. Drive the scenic river corridor along Hwy 126. There are three dams on the main stem and two covered bridges.
