Paved trail on both sides and can cross at bridges. Park for kids to play at in between bike ride. Seemed pretty safe although I would not want to ride close to dark because of homeless camps. Courteous bike riders and joggers.

I tried to send you the oregon.gov and eugene.gov website that gives all the bikepaths but annoyingly Trip Advisor won't allow me to send the link. Just know that there is a website, good luck!
