McKenzie Pass is a mountain pass with a storied history. Once used by pioneers during the settlement of Oregon, this pass became a popular spot for highwaymen, especially during the dangerous winters, who would rob the wagons attempting to cross. In 1879, John B. Waldo, American politician and local explorer, was traveling through the pass when he was stopped by bandits. Feigning ignorance of the area, he asked them for help getting to the summit pass, and the bandits complied. Legend has it, that by the time they reached the pass, Waldo was able to part with them without conflict, due to his amicable nature.
