  • Terwilliger (Cougar) Hot Springs closed May 22-23

    The Willamette National Forest is making improvements to Terwilliger (Cougar) Hot Springs and the site will be closed May 22-23.  

    The work  stems from an event several years ago. At that time, a large rock dislodged from the bank above the top pool at the hot springs. Stabilization of that site had to occur in stages and this year, reconstruction of the top pool will be completed.

    Right now, visitors who want to get to the hot spring can get there from Highway 58. Current access to the hot spring from the Highway 126 (north) side of Road 19 continues to be blocked by a large landslide deposit. Progress in clearing the landslide deposit continues: the first stage was completed in early May; we are awaiting permits to haul the material off the site and then rebuild the road.
