Love hiking upper and river trails. Beautiful views either way. The mushroom Fest is incredible here. Some of the most interesting fungus one can see,
Every time I visit the park there is some improvements. There was a children's fair going on and we walked through to take a hike with our dogs. The trail to the river was in great shape. My 82 year old mother had no problem negotiating to the river to watch the dogs swim. We returned and walked through the... More
I love to take contemplative walks with friends, and Mt. Pisgah is a great place for that. But when I am wanting a good vigorous Hike... this is my first choice in the Eugene-Springfield area. Trail #1.. the main trail to the summit is 2.8 miles roundtrip, and approximately a 1,050 foot elevation change (summit is 1,531 feet). This makes... More
Visit here! The paths are kept up well. There are hikes for all levels. Some of their paths are even wheel chair accessible. It is a true natural arboretum. A relaxing place to be - right near a river too!
My family and I recently went for a nice fall day hike, and we weren't disappointed! The wandering inner trails gave us some lovely views of local trees, and there were plenty of birds to see. Nice meandering creeks and brooks. Either print out a map with the trails labeled, or get the black-and-white one, though, because the pretty color... More
Give yourself at least two hours, preferably four. Take a picnic and plenty of water. Though many visitors just go straight up the mountain and then down, the other trails, meandering by the river and through the forest are my preference.

Excellent place to hike, with many side trails to explore. The main path leads up to an excellent picnic spot at the top of the butte. Great views from the top!
Mount Pisgah Arboretum and Buford Park are one of the very best reasons to live in Eugene/Springfield. Walk/jog/hike the Summit Trail for a good workout, especially at sunrise or sunset, or take advantage of numerous other trails for exercise, quiet, getting in shape for "real" hikes, or, if you're a resident, just a break from the day-to-day.
This is just a few minutes drive from Eugene and perfect to get into nature. Good trails along the river and nice gazebo area and facilities to rest or hang out. Free admission and just $3 to park. Recommend.
