Things to Do
Whitewater rafting on the McKenzie River is a bucket list experience for many outdoor adventurers. Fly-fishing, birding, kayaking or hiking along the river's edge provides a refreshing respite from urban living.
The McKenzie River Trail (MRT) is a favorite for families, avid hikers and mountain bikers. With many segments leading to shady fishing holes, sparkling pools and lush campgrounds, this pristine recreational trail system is a gem!
Drive or cycle the National Scenic Byways stopping to see covered bridges, waterfalls and the impressive and out-of-this-world Dee Wright Observatory. Enjoy an afternoon of golf in the cool mountain air. Soak in the warm, soothing water of natural hot springs. Poke around an artist's gallery, explore local museum collections and shop at country stores.
