    Since you’re already taking 58 you could turn off at LaPine and go out through Christmas Valley to 395 and back up to 20. It’s good running, less ups and downs than 20 because you’re going out through farm country.

    I've driven this scenic route in my own vehicle. It's a beautiful drive. It's cool how the trees change from mountain pines to rainforest firs heading west.

    "Whether by car, motorcycle, bike or foot, the McKenzie Highway (OR 242) is one of the most picturesque scenic byways or bikeways Oregon offers.

    The McKenzie Highway is part of the McKenzie Pass - Santiam Pass National Scenic Byway. The McKenzie Highway (OR 242) section of the scenic byway begins at the junction with Oregon 126 near McKenzie Bridge and ends at the junction with U.S. Highway 20 and Oregon 126 at the City of Sisters. The highway travels between two federal wilderness areas, and countless historic, recreational, and scenic features and sites. The boundaries of the Mt. Washington Wilderness and Three Sisters Wilderness also border the highway.

    The McKenzie Highway typically opens to motorized vehicles on the third Monday in June. However, a heavy snowpack can delay the summer opening."
