Nice urban hike that is close to home. Great trail for kids, trail runners, and dog walkers. Trail is in good condition, it's damp in places but nothing that I would consider muddy. I would do this again as an evening hike when time is limited, but truth be told I think I prefer trails that are less traveled and away from noisy traffic.

It’s a nice little walk through the woods as far as city hikes can offer. I’d still rather be off deep in the woods compared to this, but on a day I can’t make the drive this is a nice alternative. My only complaint is the upper viewing areas tend to be riddled with people using drugs - my family and I came here once at sunset and quickly realized we made a mistake. This isn’t a place to have a peaceful view of the city. Expect lots of other people and someone inevitably smoking pot. Which I realize might be welcome to some but for others, like myself, I can’t stand the smell. Nor can my little kiddos. The best part is seeing Eugene from above and the peaceful wooded walk up and down the Butte.

There is some additional paths in development, so that’s a plus. However the COVID camps and tent cities everywhere make it pretty sketchy. Sad to see the decline in this area from when I was a kid.

Unfortunately a lot of debris from un-housed persons. Illegal camping. Sad - very dirty

Beautiful walk but not much up the top. The views are OK. Well maintained track and not too much noise. A good incline going up to work the legs and get the heart pumping but only short spurts at a time. This will be a great regular walk for me!
