Love it and the view is amazing! I made the mistake of going without having eaten (hypoglycemic) and got lightheaded and a bit sick with the elevation increase. It's not an easy trail but it is not at all impossible. Beautiful!

I was here on a Saturday, plenty of parking at 9a but lot was filling up when I left. Trail was well kept. I took the path to the top and at the peak it wasn't immediately obvious where the trail continued so I just went back the same way. But really cool view.

Family friendly, lots of nice doggos, lots of people.

Great views!

super eas quick trail. great for kids

Nice when I want a flat surface, although it’s quite dusty. Fairly exposed.

Great trail for being right in town

Agree with other recent review. There are signs when pulling in saying to lock your car and must admit did see what seemed to be sketchy characters in the area.
Ok hike. Good for a workout.

oh ya I

Nice trail! Mostly well maintained except the southern rim is along a gully where it’s getting rough. The recorded starting point is North Trailhead where there’s no parking pay station at the parking lot. Just less than a mile away to the right at the main parking lot (West Trailhead) , there’re pay station and bathrooms.

Stunning view and worth the hike!

Watch your stuff- high crime area. I love Mt. Pisgah, but after my car got broken into & I lost stuff it makes it a less fun place.
It’s also become a college kid hangout these days for some reason- they swim in the polluted river here!

For a moment away from the city and yet in the city...this is the place! We like to bike this trail in late May/June when the ponds are hopping with life. There's so many places to take a moment and enjoy the life around yoh!!

Gorgeous views all the way up, and definitely a good workout.

Took trail 1 to the summit, and came back down via 36 and 3. I found trail 1 to be steep, not particularly scenic, and just kind if lackluster. the view from the summit is pretty nice, but not as nice as Spencer's Butte, which is a prettier hike too, albeit far more trafficked. At least there weren't many other people (and I was there in a Sunday afternoon) but there are also lots of trails that are unmarked, and thus kind of confusing to stay on the one you planned.

Worth going once, but unless I go with someone who knows the area better than I, I probably won't be going back. to be fair, I haven't explored the arboretum yet, which I'm sure is pleasant enough

Great trailer with lots of options, variety of wild flowers, and scenery.

PLEASE KEEP YOUR DOG ON A LEASH! Sign at trail head clearly states to keep dogs on a leash and every dog I saw was off leash! My dog doesn’t like others (she’s a rescue and had a hard life before me) and I had a few dogs come up to her without an owner in sight!! It’s bad trail manners and could get you’re beloved friend and possibly yourself hurt. Left irritated. To report a dogs off leash call: 541 687-4060

It’s steep! Bring extra water

Enjoyable loop along both the canal and river. Very easy to get to as long as something isn't going on at the stadium across the street. Springfield in general has a great variety of trails and bike trails along with a very good park system.

Nice little peaceful trail along the canal. Pretty peaceful walk. I even saw a guy fishing out of his canoe on the pond. Lots of waterfowl everywhere...

Beautiful hike! Take trail 2 back to the starting spot and walk through the valley. It’s wonderful!

Nice trail. Enjoyed the the river and the canal. Nice to see a more natural trail beside the bike trails.

What a great way to start a Monday morning. Trail was very well kept and excellent views up and back. We stayed on Trail # 1.

We like Baldy as a quickie hike when time is at a minimum.

Good morning hike. Went on a Saturday about 7:30. Just a few people in either direction. Beautiful walk thru the trees. Great views in every direction. First time up the hill. Won’t be the last.

Great views of the valley! First time on this trail. Only about a mile to the top using the moderate trail. Came down the steeper, shorter side. I wouldn’t recommend the steeper side if you don’t have good balance and joints :)

I love this trail. Nice workout. We went this weekend and didn't see too many birds. We also went bird watching on a "water trail" with a river guide with a local company Riparian Tours. OMG! We saw eagles and a bunch of osprey hunting right there near the boat. I love Eugene.

Beautiful views from the top! Trail on Memorial Day was very crowded,, so probably not the best hike to do on weekends if you are looking for some peace and quiet.

We hiked the shorter more steep trail the first time I came here, it was a nice little challenge and even though it was raining and misty it was beautiful at the top. The second time here we took the moderate more gradual trail, it was a sunny day and we could see several mountains in the distance! Favorite hike in Eugene/Springfield area.
