McKenzie Pass Scenic Bikeway by Molly Blancett


Drive the roads throughout the Eugene, Cascades & Coast region safely. Travel with extra water, snacks and blankets in your car and keep your gas tank at least half full.

  • Watch for deer, turkeys and smaller animals crossing the roadways, even in urban areas.
  • Watch for cyclists throughout the towns and along the scenic byways.
  • Plan your trips by checking weather and road conditions before you go.
  • Do not drive or walk through flood waters. Floodwaters may be contaminated with oil, gas or sewage and may be hiding hazards and debris. Just six inches of moving water on a roadway can knock over an adult. Twelve inches can carry away a small vehicle. Turn around, don't drown.
  • If your call stalls in water, immediately abandon the vehicle and move away from the flood waters. If you and your vehicle are trapped in rapidly moving water, stay in the vehicle and call for help. If water is rising inside, move to the roof.
  • Chains may be required seasonally when traveling over the Willamette and McKenzie-Santiam passes, even if the weather appears fine.
  • Highway 242 between the McKenzie River and Sisters is typically closed November - June. Instead drive Highway 20.
  • The Aufderheide connecting McKenzie River to Oakridge is not maintained during the winter.
  • If roads are closed due to hazards, please respect the barriers and do not circumvent on foot. Hillsides, roadways, structures and trees may be unstable.

  • Remember to take your time and enjoy the journey!
