One of my favorite places in Oregon is Terwilliger Hot Springs (aka Cougar Hot Springs). It's a short drive from Eugene. What we found there is 5 hot springs pools that very in temprature from very hot to luke warm. The hot springs were less than a mile walk into the lush forrest. This is a clothing optional place so be warned if you plan on going here. We went to these springs several times and the day it rained was the best. This is probably one of the most relaxing places on earth. You can find out more and get directions here. http://www.nwhotsprings.net/terwilliger.htm

Take a hike around Spencer Butte, just on the outskirts of town. Some of the best panoramic scenery can be found from off the top of this peak. Here's some pictures from when I lived there in 1994.
See the Cascades from atop an easy mountain hike .
Just a few miles drive from Eugene is a wonderful hike (fairly easy) to Fuji Mountain. From the top you can see Waldo Lake and the Cascades off in the distance. Spectacular views!
