Cyclists savored last auto-free weekend

Cyclists took a break at the base of the Dee Wright Observatory during the last weekend before Hwy. 242 was reopened to motorized traffic.

MCKENZIE PASS: The McKenzie Highway (OR 242) is now open for the season. It opened at 8 a.m. on June 21st. The Oregon Dept. of Transportation (ODOT) advises people to contact either the Willamette or Deschutes National Forests to learn about the status of campgrounds, trailheads, and other facilities.

The Old McKenzie Highway closes annually from mid-November to mid-June. The earliest opening is the third Monday in June. Some years, that date may be later, depending on weather and road conditions. ODOT posts signs and closes gates when the road is closed.
