Made a special trip for this between Springfield, OR, and Sisters, OR, only to find that the parking lot is full. When the parking lot is full, you have to park a mile away in either direction, and walk. And the parking lot is embarrassingly...More

When I lived in Eugene, this was on our regular radar -- both for the reservoir (when it was full) and the hot springs, usually one after the other. We even spent part of our wedding night up there with the wedding party just relaxing....More

Had a great soak with the family at Terwilliger (Cougar) hot springs. Such a short (1/4 mile) hike to get to such a spectacular location. They have a tie up area for dogs as they are not allowed in the pools. I was a little...More
