Cougar Dam, on the south fork of the scenic McKenzie River, is just off the McKenzie\/Santiam Pass Scenic Byway. The dam demonstrates some cutting-edge efforts in support of the Willamette Hatcheries Biological Opinion Project and migrating salmon. A temperature control tower takes water of various temperatures from the reservoir and spills it into the river, keeping water cool in the summer for salmon. A trap-and-haul fish facility uses a fishway leading from the base of Cougar Dam to a holding pool where fish can be sorted and returned to the river or transported for release to sites above the dam. People may view and learn about these facilities and hike in the national forest or visit the hot springs nearby.<\/p>\r\n

The local culture is enhanced in many ways by this dam. Cougar Dam is one of 13 that protect the Willamette Valley during flood events. It is set in the beautiful Willamette National Forest and is right near the Cougar Hot Springs. Learning more about how federal, state and other agencies are partnering to make things happen for the salmon speaks volumes about the culture of the people in this region.<\/p>","post_name":"cougar-dam","post_type":"resource","slug":"recreation","name":"Recreation","lat":"44.1233","lng":"-122.242","distance":"4.0","permalink":"\/see-do\/oregon-heritage\/history-heritage\/cougar-dam\/","terms":"a Sustainable Travel<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"},{"ID":"7077","post_title":"King-Castle Trail","post_content":"The King-Castle Trail (#4326)\/ Castle Rock Trail (#3506) is an 11 mile moderate to difficult collection of trails.

This is the signature trail ride in Oregon, rated the #1 trail in the nation by a national cycling magazine. It’s 26 miles of beauty and challenge, offering sections that are appropriate and challenging for everyone from the weekend cruiser to the thrill junkie.<\/p>\r\n

The top-end trailhead starts just off Highway 126 about a mile above Clear Lake; there’s an off-road parking lot. Most people ride this one-way (usually downhill from the top) in groups, using shuttle vehicles; soloists can try a hitchhiking solution, ride it all the way down and back (a long day) or pick a shorter segment to ride out-and-back.<\/p>\r\n

The trail starts in deep forest and soon presents a choice of routes around Clear Lake. Go east (left) to take the challenging route through loose lava rock, some paved trail (but not easy, actually) and along the rugged edge of the lake. You’ll go right by the spring pool that feeds the lake and the McKenzie River. The west fork is much gentler.<\/p>\r\n

After Clear Lake you’ll cross the highway and start a section of technical trail through the forest – roots, rocks, small ledges and lava rocks make this a good challenge. Don’t be too foolish to get off the bike for a couple stretches. You’ll pass Sahalie and Koosah Falls, and eventually lose the river as it submerges below ground. After a bit, you’ll see Tamolitch Pool, a serene bloe pool where the river re-emerges. There are rocks above the pool perfect for stopping for a food break.<\/p>\r\n

As you continue on, there are some more technical stretches, but eventually the trail becomes more intermediate. There are some awesome segments where you can glide through the trees, slaloming like a ski run without touching the brakes for hundreds of yards at a time. There are multiple stream crossings, all with bridges; many of them are made of huge logs and present a serious can-you-ride-this challenge for the adrenaline lovers.<\/p>\r\n

The bottom section is much less technical than the top, but still presents some climbs and plenty of surreal scenery.<\/p>\r\n

The trail crosses roads and jogs around a bit, but it’s signed well enough to keep you on track. There are multiple entry points from Highway 126; check with the ranger station in McKenzie Bridge for advice if you want a partial ride.<\/p>\r\n

This is (overall) downhill, but it’s not necessarily a trail where you’ll make fast time. Allow four to five hours top to bottom unless you’re in a hurry. And on this trail, you shouldn’t be.<\/p>\r\n
