Nice path system to get you around town quickly on bike. Great spot to escape to; it's easy to get to and from. Nice walking path, but heavily trafficked. Few swim spots. You can access the Owen Rose Garden from there. It's a nice option to get away when you don't have much time.
We walked a loop that took us over Coburg Road and by Skinner Butte. The "trail" is actually a cement walkway that parallels the Willamette river on both sides. We walked on a very cold and foggy New Years Day but many people were using the trail. I'm sure the views are beautiful when the sun is out.
A very enjoyable path that runs alongside the Willamette River. Great for a weekend bike ride through the heart of Eugene, or a walk on a fall afternoon. There are many views available of the river along the trail, as well as parks. Perfect path to bring along the kids and the camera.
