This trail ends right near our home. It's easy to get to along many parking lots along the trail. It's paved until way out past the lake. I take my toddler out on sunny days for short walks often. One of my favorite things to do is drive bikes out to the lake and ride home. It would be easy... More

I walk this path almost every Saturday morning. The bird watching North around the ponds is fantastic.

This highly accessible, beautiful, and well-maintained urban trail is the highlight of a visit to Eugene. Along with the trail itself, there are several "side" attractions along its seven-mile length, including the fantastic River Play park for kids and the stunning rose garden, among others. As parts of the trail are busy, it's important to remember the "rules of the... More

If you're looking for a safe, scenic, and easy-to-navigate bike and running path, look no further. The Willamette River Bike Trail in Eugene, Oregon, is a true gem. It alternates between asphalt and cement for the majority of the route, and large sections also offer a dirt and/or bark mulch alternative for those who prefer. The path follows both sides... More

I ride a 20-mile look several times a week on my bike. We walk often. Well-maintained pavement and asphalt surface. Right along the river, traveling through several city parks, beautifully landscaped. Lots of place to picnic.

The people involved in creating this resource have left a legacy. This is such a great way to exercise, commute, birdwatch or just have a relaxing walk. It winds along the river and connects you to downtown, the university, north Eugene. There are bathrooms, kids play areas, water fountains and it's fairly well lit at night. I just got back... More

This bike path is my favorite in Eugene. The path goes right along the river so you get the beautiful scenery & its tree-lined so it helps to keep it cool in the summer.

We walked after dark because it was November! I felt very safe and among friends. My son and I walked from the hotel were we stayed and saw signs of a run/walk event planned for the next morning.

I hesitate to review this bike trail for fear it may become too popular. Living in Eugene I have access year round so may not appreciate it as I should. But said straight, it is a delight to mosey along this trail that follows along the Willamette River on both sides for approx. 6-8 miles, depending on your time and... More
