Willamette NF: McKenzie Ranger District

With a ride so good they named a ranger district after it, the McKenzie RD has even more to offer than it's most famous ride, with a great cluster of trails near O'Leary Mountain.

Like the Willamette River and Umpqua River trails, the McKenzie river trail covers a LOT of terrain, with some reasonable climbing between the Trail Bridge Campground and Sahalie Falls, and one of the great lavabed trails in the Cascade Range.
