Deerhorn Road/Hwy. 126
May 30, 1992
The group gathered at 10:00 a.m. at Hendricks Wayside Park.
The weather was near to perfect with blue skies and very little breeze.
We crossed the bridge and headed up Deerhorn Road with fern-covered wooded hills on one side and
glimpses of the McKenzie River on the other.
The group separated a bit due to differing skills and gearing, but we all re-joined for a rest stop
at a waterfall six miles into the trip.
Continuing on Deerhorn to the bridge and the Holden Creek Road to Hwy. 126, we had our next stop
at the Leaburg Store for coffee.
The entire group was ready for more than the originally scheduled 18 miles, so we went on up Hwy. 126
to the Leaburg Trout Hatchery for a leisurely lunch, followed by a look at the fish and then back
on our bikes.
We headed back down river, taking as many loop side roads as possible to minimize our miles on the
busy McKenzie Highway.
We arrived back at Hendricks Wayside at 3:00 p.m. — 28 miles for those who drove to the starting
Great bikers were Corinne Hunt, Mary Brattin, Bob Devine, Shirley Froyd, Alice Moffitt, Mary Bremner
and Dick & Rose-Marie Moffitt (on their tandem).
Happy leader for such a group was Norma Lockyear.
