Landslide damage is extensive

Aufderheide Drive closure could last through summer

A serious landslide between milepost 54 and 56 on Forest Service Road 19 (Aufderheide Drive) is likely to continue to limit access to Terwilliger Hot Springs from the McKenzie Valley. Other day-use sites and campgrounds will not be accessible from Highway 126. Affected recreation sites include the Echo Boat Launch; Sunnyside Campground; Slide Creek Campground; Cougar Crossing Campground and Boat Launch; French Pete Campground; Hard Rock Group Campground; Red Diamond Group Campground; Roaring River Group Campground; Frissell Crossing Campground; Box Canyon Guard Station; and the Box Canyon Horse Camp. After the snow melts and fallen trees have been cleared, recreation sites will be accessible from the south side of FSR 19 (via Oakridge/Westfir).
