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!

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.

Beautiful! Saw lots of critters including a little orange newt!

Good light run trail. Scenic but hard to follow at tmes

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

Lots of Poison Oak on the paths less traveled, be aware of your surroundings. Also had some people let us know that the last hike they went on here they found ticks on themselves. We made it out okay, beautiful day!! I highly suggest going off the beaten path and exploring, very much worth it as the main trail is always busy with people.

Love the whole arboretum. Saw a screech owl napping in a tree on my last hike.

I walked this trail starting on Willamette Street, it is a shorter hike with small inclines both directions. Majority of trail is covered and dry. If you walk the direction I did look to the right about 1/2 way and you can view the city. 2 small side trails on the left lead to the road, nothing else. In my opinion this is the more challenging way if you go out and back.

Great views and terrific scenery on just about every trail. Check out the Three Sisters mountains to the East once you reach the summit!

Very short hike with 2 ways to the top. Left side is more steep and direct. If you take the right pathway it is less of an incline. It is shorter and a 20 minute hike total. At the top is 1 good view but this hike should be a pit stop not a day hike.

Trail #1 is moderate with incline to the summit. A few benches are scattered throughout the trail to help with rest if needed. Trail #3 will meetup with trail #1 about midway. Once you reach the top walk around the summit and enjoy the views.

Great place to walk in town. Kid friendly dog friendly.

The summit was pretty brutal, very steep and Rocky. Rocks weren't bothersome until heading down where it was slick ..had a couple scraped knees with the kids ages 5 and 6. summit was beautiful! a very nice, very local hike to take .

Great hike! Took the 2nd right on the way down (trail #4) and got to see a really beautiful forest! Total distance was increased to 3.9 miles.

beautiful way to explore the outdoors. Don't care for the main trail but the lower ones are great

Great trail... two fairly easy peaks to climb with lush forest and vegetation!

I love hiking this trail, lots of foot traffic and some horses. Its beautiful!. You get your work out. Few minutes out of town.

Not a very good hike at all. Was good weather, view was good at the top, however the “top” is like 10 minutes from the trailhead. Boring on the way down, and saw lots of houses along the way..

Great conditioning hike if you move fast. Decent incline whole way up. Okay views at the summit, however only of the east side. Would go again mainly because its 10 minutes from town, and easy to get too.

Pisgah is less busy than Spencer's butte and a nice change in scenery. This route is also less crowed as the more popular trails(1 and 17). It gives chance to exchange pleasantry, but doesn't overwhelm the trail with crowds of people. This path also cuts out the steep gravel section of trail # 1, but in exchange it offers an almost steeper and slightly muddier(in winter) section on 4, just before it meets back with 1. I am 270 lbs. and with my trekking poles, had no problem tackling this route up Pisgah. It ends with the same sweet payoff, a beautiful view of the three sisters and other cascades mountains on a clear day, as well as the Willamette valley below.

Walked this trail with an almost 3-year-old, 7, and 11 yo. A really easy, mildly steep, but quick hike that leads to truly beautiful views on both sides. A great family-friendly hike with a view deserves a 5!
