Tip: Bring a bike lock and take a short hike to see proxy falls – two spectacular waterfalls off a 1.25 mile path.   Tip: Every Spring McKenzie Pass (Hwy 242) is open for a few weeks exclusively for Road Bike Riding until mid June.   When does the road open to road bikers?  The crews plow the road and we don’t know when until a week or so before they do it – its all based on weather and snow pack.
