General Information

Tub Springs State Wayside
Copyright: - Oregon State Parks
Tub Springs State Wayside
Description - In 1846, a wagon train led by Jesse Applegate traversed southern Oregon along what became known as the Applegate Trail. Tub Springs Wayside is one of the stopping points before you head down the mountain pass into Ashland.

Attractions - Take a moment to stop here amid the towering fir and sense what it was like 150 years ago. Breathe in the fresh mountain air. There's an interpretive panel at the wayside describing the difficulties faced by these pioneers.

The name Tub Springs is derived form the tubs that were installed in the 1930s to provide spring water for travelers. The tubs have been renovated and are still functional today. The same springs that provided early settlers with plentiful fresh water still flow.

Vital stats: There is no fee to use this park.

Recreation - Tub Springs provides opportunities for picnicking, viewing nature and viewing historic interpretive exhibits.

Climate - Climate in this region varies with elevation and from east to west. The western portions of this region experience higher precipitation and more moderate temperatures year-round. The eastern end of this region is much more arid, with warmer summer temperatures and colder winter temperatures. The higher elevations receive abundant winter snowfall which stays on the ground until early summer in the high mountains.

Location - Tub Springs is located off OR 66, 18 miles east of Ashland, in Southern Oregon.
