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.

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 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.

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.

Hiked up the shorter steeper trail on the left side of the trailhead for a steep challenging but awesome hike for a well worth it view!! The view was killer and awesome! There is a small scramble up a hillside that was super fun but I only recommend it for those who feel fit to do it cause it’s pretty steep! We proceeded to hike down the other trail to loop around which was a much easier trail. So if you prefer a much easier trail to go up and down use the trail to the right of the trailhead!! All in all 5 out of 5 hike that was well maintained and had lots of room for a very populated hike!

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

Took my 3 kids for mothers day 11,10 and 3.... It was very beautiful. BUT THERE WHERE 2 BABY RATTLE SNAKES. I'll still go on this trail just be watchful.

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!

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.
