Finn Rock Landing closing

Work will extend from October 23rd through Spring

Finn Rock Landing, off Quartz Creek Road, will be closed from October 23, 2023 until Spring 2024 for renovations. Improvements to the site will include a better road base, safer traffic flow, and the installation of new parking stalls, ADA-accessible walkways, fencing, bird-friendly lighting, picnic tables, and garbage receptacles.

The site, which attracts as many as 400 people a day in the summer, is owned and managed by The McKenzie River Trust (MRT).

MRT’s Executive Director, Joe Moll, said they know some users will be disappointed. “We understand that this construction closure will be a significant inconvenience for the many river users who launch or take out at Finn Rock throughout the year. But we expect the site improvements to make the landing more accessible, safe, and enjoyable for all community members and visitors.”

Previously owned by the Rosboro Company as a publicly accessible recreation site, it was purchased by the trust in 2016, MRT also acquired the larger Finn Rock Reach habitat conservation area, which has undergone major restoration efforts over the last three years.
