HikingGreat!

Great hike if you need a little burner and can't get out of town. Takes a little less than an hour up and little less than 40 minutes down. Plan on 2-3 hours, depending on how fast you wanna go. Trail is well maintained, steep at the very top. You see less people at the start of this route and will see more as you get closer to the trailheads with shorter routes up to the top. COVID: most of the trails aren't super wide, so you can't stay away from folk. Bring a mask and enjoy some fresh air. 8/10 people or so seem to have some face covering whenever I go up.

This is a great hike, however, there are now a lot more people than normal and those stair aren’t fun.

HikingGreat!

This is such a fantastic gem of a trail for our little city. Very well maintained, quiet, beautiful- you bump into some folks, but everyone is lovely about masks, etc. A good challenge with a nice reward.

Very nice hike. Around 7 mi RT. This was a great start of the hiking season hike. Average elevation gain is around 400-500 ft/mi. Though the last 300ft of elevation to the summit are steep rock steps! lots of them. lol. Time: 2 hr 25 min. Note, that along the Fox Hollow and Ridgeline trail sections, lots of poison oak and ivy. The trails are in great condition, so you can skirt around any that come over. Or bring poles to move them. Enjoy.

Hiking

I actually hiked from Spring Blvd Trailhead to Dillard East Trailhead to Fox Hollow Trailhead to 52nd and Willamette to Blanton Ridge Trailhead. I tried to record this but my tracker jumped all over the place for some reason. It was a slow leasure hike that I competed in about 4 hours and is over 6 miles. It is the most completely linked Ridgeline hike you can take point to point. It leaves out Spencer's Butte which could be added in for an added challenge. The hike it's self starts off steep, then leaves the majority of the trail gradually down hill with gradual uphill sections. Almost entirely shaded with all the great wildlife and view each trail on its own has to offer. All these trails are moderately used and some busier than others. A future plan I have is to add in Susanne Arlie area, but there are no officially maintained trails as of August 2019. BATHROOMS: beware that there are only a few spots for bathroom stops and I packed all my own water and snacks as there are none. You can download the official ridgeline map via a quick Google search, or pick a physical copy up at the Blanton Ridge trailhead. Happy hiking.

One of my standard hikes. I do it almost every Wednesday with the Obsidians, a Eugene based hiking club. Check out their website Obsidians.org and join us for this hike. The trail is in great shape with fixes to winter storm damage largely completed.

Started from Martin Street. The trailhead is across the street from the trail map and map info billboard. Missed that at first. The first half of the trail was beautiful and reminiscent of certain North Carolina sections of the AT. Towards the top the trail gets very congested due to parking access. I suggest Hiking this trail on an off day if you want solitude.

Love this hike! It is showing 3.7 miles up, and 3.7 miles back, for a total of 7.4, so I am not sure why this says 5.7
