Views were nice. Tons of trails to choose from once at the top to get down. Parts of the trail look like a road covered in stones. Can get pretty steep.

Beautiful hike but lots of large rocks mixed with gravel. Fee is $4 paid via passport parking app, so that may be worth downloading before heading out.

This trail was so beautiful! Definitely some uphill so make sure your ready for exercise! Its 4$ for parking but totally worth it. Be careful there are many tiny caterpillars hanging from the trees!

$4.00 fee credit card only! Good hike and great views! take it slow and anyone can do it. Take a picture of the trail map. If there’s a map online it would be worth printing out. AllTrails worked great, 4.7 miles. Start at the Arboretum and go along the river for the first mile or so

Steeper inclines than I anticipated but nice view of the Willamette Valley at the top.

If you cut through the arboretum you can take a longer route to the summit and it’s much more enjoyable. Hiking that way is 7 miles with some steep inclines so if you’re looking for a challenging hike outside of the Eugene area I would recommend it! There’s marked signs to guide you towards the summit. Many terrain changes and some nice views.

It’s a beautiful place. But unfortunately my dog brought home a bunch of ticks. So just be cautious on off leash trails.

Great views. On way up closer to the top, was a really steep incline. Very challenging if one isn’t in great shape. Did this one without poles. was manageable, even though I usually prefer to have them, predominantly for downhill to protect the knees. Fun and challenging. Did this hike on Monday. Muddy but no problem. Kudos to the nice friendly guy who was jogging this hike in the cold and rain. Looked like his dog, who was off leash, was having a blast keeping up with him. On way down got a break of sun. Was nice. Definitely recommend. Check out Spencer Butte as well. Did that one today 1/15. Was awesome. I kinda liked the Spencer Butte a bit more, but both nice. Check out my review on that hike.

The less populated trail head is a great way to start the hike. Trail #1 and trail #2 require dogs to be on leashes but the others allow for voice control. It’s a wonderful way to get out some dog energy. The dogs would give it five stars! People and dogs was very friendly, giving these trails a sense of community! We took Trail #6 to trail #2 (back on leash for dogs) to the summit then all the way back to trailhead on #6. Done on November 30th. Trail is pretty muddy toward the top on Trail #6 other trails weren’t too muddy. On thanksgiving day I did #2 from main trailhead. Also wondering hike and not as steep as trail #1. Trail conditions were good but icy in parts at the top.

Points of the trail don’t have shade and it gets really hot. Ground is rock/gravel which can get uncomfortable on your feet. Wear good shoes.

It’s a different kind of trail. Mix of shade and sun. Blackberries everywhere. Nice views. Took a couple of different loops on the way back. Met 3 locals who gave us lots of good tourism suggestions!

I completed this trail over a year ago with my wife, son, and dog. The trail is steep, dirt and gravel, and has little to no shade. It was very challenging and while the view at the top was gorgeous, it was more of a hill for people looking to get a workout in and less for nature lovers. That being said, this was my first experience with Mt Pisgah and it ruined my thoughts of the place until I learned of the other trails along the sides that are really the most amazing and gorgeous places in this area. Well maintained, shaded, wetlands full of life. I say this so if people have had a similar experience they might learn sooner that the area has much more to offer than a steep climb and view on a busy trail.

This trail always kicks my butt and I love that about it! I consistently finish in 1 1/2 hrs! It’s steep and gravelly, and I do appreciate the location!!

Great hike along a wide, open trail. Never hard, but with a good, consistent incline. You’ll be sweating. Scenery is broad and grand, opening down and toward the western sunset. Huge, wild oak trees are the dominate flora, and lend a different atmosphere from Oregon’s typical forest hikes. Summit is a long N-S ridge with great views of the valley.
