Posts Tagged ‘McKenzie Bridge’

Black_HorseI’ve heard of the “Trail of The Black Horse” motorcycle ride in the past, but never had the time to look up the information let alone determine if I could pull some time off work to make the ride.

I recently learned the ride is basically the McKenzie Highway from Sisters, Oregon to McKenzie Bridge on Hwy 242. The folks at Black Horse Saloon in Bend sponsor the ride and it all comes together on August 22nd.  The Black Horse Saloon is a great biker friendly saloon in central Oregon and home to a number of motor head clubs.

The ride is a narrow road which is closed from November thru July every year due to snow pack.  The route crosses a lava flow just west of Sisters and near the 5,325’ summit there is Clear Lake (head waters for the McKenzie River) a renowned location for fresh-water SCUBA diving.

This is one ride to add to the do list!
