Cougar West Trailhead

This trailhead is located near the northern boundary of Ochoco National Forest and provides access to the western terminus of Cougar Trail (#835).  

In the summer of 2014, the Bailey Butte fire burned through this area and much of the damage is still visible. Forest Service crews have spent considerable time clearing and stabilizing trails, and removing hazard trees. 

Please be cautions in this area as not all of the hazards can be mitigated.
