McKenzie River

Feel the exhilarating tingle of fresh air and rushing water as you journey into the Cascade Mountains along the McKenzie River. Revel in the solitude among sun-soaked old-growth forests, then find camaraderie in the half-dozen riverside communities.

The Wild & Scenic McKenzie River is known for its world-class white water rafting, fishing and waterfall hikes. The McKenzie River Trail (MRT) edges the banks of the river for outstanding hiking, trail running and mountain biking. Artisan enclaves provide festivals, markets and cultural experiences in this natural wonderland.
