Nice quick hike. Catches elevation quickly.
Nice views of the city from the south summit. High recommend checking out the climbing columns on the way down.

It's a nice short trail up to a city center view point located in the middle of Eugene. I like to jog the river trail with my kids and always take the 20 min or so jog to the top of Skinners Butte and back. across the street from the Butte there is a cute kids play ground as well.

This is a nice short (1.5) mile urban walk/stroll/short hike combining wooded areas up and down Spencer Butte (elevation less than 300') and a quarter mile along the river. There is ample parking at Campbell Park (eastern trailhead) and at the Riverplay Discovery Village and Playground (western trailhead)
