Outstanding singletrack route that travels through an old-growth forest along the banks of the McKenzie River in the Willamette National Forest. Here is your chance to run next to one of the best river trails in the West! This route will dazzle you with its wide smooth track, gorgeous old-growth trees, and crystal-clear river. The trail weaves in and out of magical forest and at several different points takes you near the river’s edge until you reach Paradise Campground—your turnaround point. If you’re amped for more river running, the trail continues upriver for 24 more gorgeous miles! Ultra trail-running fans can compete in the McKenzie River 50K Trail Run, held on this route in September.
