When we went to Eugene for Thanksgiving, we were startled to see that our favorite little spot to stretch our legs had changed. Dramatically. McCredie Hot Springs is not very accessible any longer.
What was once a huge lot that could hold many cars (and lots of semi-trucks) has now been shrunk down to a paved parking lot that holds ten or so cars. An outhouse was needed, and so was a garbage can, but I am not sure that the rest of this is really an improvement, and it had to have cost a lot of money for the revamp.
After a short time, the trail ends at the soaking pools. Clothing is optional, so beware of bare buns and boobies.
The changes have made the pools more private. They have effectively limited the number of people who can be there at one time and have made it so that truckers can't swing in for a quick soak.
