less crowded then spencers butte, but about the same difficulty, be aware you have to pay to park. also try the trail up from the back side if you like a few people

Mt. Pisgah offers a variety of trails for all fitness levels. The views from the summit are stunning. Equally beautiful are the trails just beyond the event center which are not as physically challenging and where many trees are identified. Plus, this park has nice restrooms.

Good uphill hiking, easy to follow trail. During colder months watch for ice near summit but I haven't seen enough ice to make me turn around! I take some of my elderly clients here for some good nature time, making it to the top is so worth it.

My friends and I didn’t reach the top, but the trail we went up was a lot of fun while still being a moderate hike!

Fairly easy hike, the reasons to go are that it's conveniently located to Eugene and can be used to train for more difficult feats.

Their are several trails. Trail 1 and 6 summit. Several trails connect to these two trails. Lots to explore. Depends on the year but wildflowers, mushrooms, abundance of wild life. Great steep grade up and down with unobstructed views of Eugene, Springfield and beyond.

Fun hike with a variety of different landscapes to see around the mountain. Wetlands and woods too the view at the top give a couple of different types of hikes around here.

Know what poison oak looks like before you go. It is everywhere and does not have leaves in the winter months so it blends right in. Bronze solstice sighting pedestal at the summit is really nice, go on either solstice and watch the sunrise or sunset through slots in the base.

Good place for a quick hike, it seems like a good place to hike if you're trying to get into better shape for larger feats thanks to the relatively consistent uphill slope

Challenging trail if you're starting to get back in shape. I would do it again though.
