It was a decent hike. It was only 1.8 miles instead of 2.8. Not sure where the extra mile went! :P

PLEASE KEEP YOUR DOG ON A LEASH! Sign at trail head clearly states to keep dogs on a leash and every dog I saw was off leash! My dog doesn’t like others (she’s a rescue and had a hard life before me) and I had a few dogs come up to her without an owner in sight!! It’s bad trail manners and could get you’re beloved friend and possibly yourself hurt. Left irritated. To report a dogs off leash call: 541 687-4060

We like Baldy as a quickie hike when time is at a minimum.

Very short hike with 2 ways to the top. Left side is more steep and direct. If you take the right pathway it is less of an incline. It is shorter and a 20 minute hike total. At the top is 1 good view but this hike should be a pit stop not a day hike.

Not a very good hike at all. Was good weather, view was good at the top, however the “top” is like 10 minutes from the trailhead. Boring on the way down, and saw lots of houses along the way..

Lots of poison oak so be aware! We went to watch the sunset and it's the perfect spot! You won't want to go if it's rained recently you might a slip a lot! We had to learn that the hard way! We had 6 kids under 5 and a puppy and it was pretty manageable! Took a little bit longer than normal but it's one of our favorites!

Groomed gravel trail with some nice views.

Good hike. The first mile has mostly gravel on the trail. If you keep going, it can get muddy in the rainy season. The hills were moderately challenging.

Nice views of mountains!

Nice hike if you just wanna get the blood flowin'. It's definitely kid and pet friendly but the view at the summit isn't that great. Overall a good little hike though!

Only 1 mile loop, good work out up for heart and down for knees. Some good views up top, part of Skyline Ridge Trail system---potential for longer hike in either direction. Too many houses and powerlines to feel like you're communing with nature.

It's a nice hike. Always bring my dogs never a lot of people.

Nice easy trail for stretching your legs on an afternoon. There's not really a view from the summit due to scrub and trees, but the section between the Dillard trailhead and the summit has some really lovely vistas, especially the hiker-only section. (The section from the Spring St trailhead is nicely forested.)

Nice for getting out in the sun during your hike. Got some great pics of others on the trail

Great short hike with some views. Also good for MTB with some steep fast sections.

You have to catch this trail on a nice day, preferable when it isn't windy. The wind really whips right through and can be extremely cold! The path is very clean and maintained, even in the steep areas it's maintained to the point of actually being graveled. It is a pretty steep trail, but I think anyone can accomplish this short hike. It's a steep up, a nice long walk across the top and then back down the steep bottom. There's parking at the bottom and even a map at the trail head.

This was a rather difficult walk. It was good starters hike, but the views weren't at all worth the effort. You couldn't see the cascades.

Eugene has several interlaced trails just outside the city under the Ridgeline Trail System. We hiked the Mount Baldy trail from the Spring Street trailhead to the Dillard North trailhead and back. The first part of the hike is in wooded forest and all uphill. Once at the top of the summit the terrain is mostly open if you take the bike trail at the split down to the other side. If you take the footpath, you go back into wooded forest with some great views overlooking the city. Many families on the trail today. Dogs on leash. Good workout for just over a mile each way.
