Overview Map (opens in a new window)
The McKenzie Pass road is the scenic route to Sisters, Oregon from Eugene. It is very tight and technical in places - watch for some gravel in the corners. The major pass portion of this road is deep forest and the overall road has a huge variation in scenery from cool shade to stark volcanic flows. It is 30 miles in length. Large RV's are prohibited from this road for very good reason; don't get behind even a small RV.
McKenzie Pass is OR 242 and leaves OR 126 about 14 miles east of the town of Blue River. It ends in Sisters, Oregon.
