Great workout and a wonderful view at the top.
I crave this hike regularly. It can be quick and challenging or slow and steady the view at the top is breath taking and it just feels like home in this place.
If you want to see what Eugene is all about, this is the place to see a full view of the city! It's a challenging hike uphill, but it's a reasonable distance to get to the top. We actually took the long way up and the short way down :)
One of my favorites! If you want a serious challenge, try running it
Wonderful steep hike up, lovely view, easy walk down :)
A great challenge :D
Great simple hike
Love this hike. In the summer time it offers shade almost all the way up. It's a good climb and amazing view.
beautiful views. there are a couple ways to reach the peak, each with varying difficulty and their own micro climates
I took the short and very steep way up. It was a good workout!
Beautiful 360 views at top!!
Beautiful scenery! Well worth the hike!
The best part about Spencer Butte is the view from the top. I find it a wonderful and peaceful place to be, although it can be a bit crowded up there. It's a fairly easy walk up for most, but if you have any physical limitations it is more on the moderate side.
