soak in hot springs
Ahhh... who needs a bubble bath when nature provides its own soothing remedy to life's little stresses. Soak up to your chin in hot mineral pools with a forest backdrop and the accompaniment of birdsong.
McCredie Hot Springs outside of Oakridge offers an untethered nature-lovers' experience, while Terwilliger (Cougar) Hot Springs, near the McKenzie River, bubbles up into six natural and scenic pools subject to moderate park rules. The idyllic Belknap Hot Springs Resort and campground on the banks of the McKenzie River features two hot spring-fed swimming pools for a more conventional swim. Day passes for the lower pool and locker rooms are available.
hike scenic trails
Hiking and mountain biking trails crisscross the region from the Cascade Mountains to the Oregon Coast. Trek to panoramic vistas, parallel rushing waters or dance across wide-open beaches. Dabble on legendary hiking trails like the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail (PCT) or the McKenzie River National Recreation Trail (MRT). Enjoy pleasant strolls along the paved pathways of Cottage Grove's Row River National Recreation Trail and Eugene - Springfield's Ruth Bascom Riverbank Path System. Or skirt massive sand dunes through coastal wetlands flush with wildlife on the Siltcoos Lake Trail.
