We’ve partnered with Roadtrippers to provide a great way to plan a trip around Oregon. So start planning your next road trip to here, there or pretty much anywhere in Oregon.

The Cold Springs Trail begins by traveling through a logged over area. Beyond that, the trail passes through a series of dry meadows separated by stands of Shasta red fir. Wildflowers are abundant in early summer, including Indian paintbrush, dwarf lupine, and larkspur. The early morning hiker may see deer grazing in the meadows.

One mile from the trailhead is Paul Bunyans’ grave. The grave, located on the north side of the trail, is a large pile of loose rock marked by a porcelain sign.

The trail is difficult to follow across the meadows. So cairns (piled rocks) mark the way across the meadows , while tree blazes can be found in the forested parts of the trail. We recommend that you carry your own water. The springs are not a reliable water source due to livestock in the area.

Directions: From Prospect: Travel north on Highway 62 to Forest Service Road 6215. Turn right and follow 6215 east, past the junction with Forest Service Road 6215.300 and Red Blanket Mountain, to the trailhead on the right.

Seasonal Access: Normally Accessible: May-October

Facility Type: Trail
