Mckenzie River Trail 3705 Professional Reviews and Guides
"Winding along the crystal-clear, fast-flowing McKenzie River, this classic singletrack trail twists its way through a forested ecosystem characterized by majestic stands of old-growth Douglas fir and a mix of younger trees with a spongy forest floor carpeted in green, glowing ferns and moss-coated logs. The trail is well maintained and full of bridges, stream crossings, waterfalls, and fast twisty sections. If you love to ride forever on singletrack, this trail is sure to please. Trail surface: Singletrack, doubletrack, and bridges."
--Lizann Dunegan, Mountain Biking Oregon: Northwest & Central Oregon (Falcon Guides).
"Hands-down, the McKenzie River National Recreation Trail is one of the most spectacular trails in the United States. This may sound like a bold claim, but after running a few miles through the pristine old-growth wilderness, most trail users will agree. The 26.5 miles of singletrack are punctuated by amazingly clear lakes and streams, roaring waterfalls, interesting lava ?ows, deep and mesmerizing aquamarine pools, and some of Oregon’s most breathtaking scenery."
--Lucas Alberg, Trail Running: Bend and Central Oregon (Wilderness Press).
"On the west side of the Cascade Range, midway between Bend and Eugene. A classic ride. This trail highlights the best of Oregon with mountain views, lush old-growth forest, and unbelievably clear river, and surprises around every corner."
--Scott Rapp, Mountain Biking Bend (Falcon Guides).
