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 :)

Love this hike. In the summer time it offers shade almost all the way up. It's a good climb and amazing view.

I took the short and very steep way up. It was a good workout!
