The path we took was difficult with obstacles but a lot of fun!

Beautiful trail. Watch out for poison oak.

It was slightly muddy with a little bit a maintenance happening but we were still able to go up and it was done on the way back. We’re both plus size moms who carried our 25lb+ kids there and back just fine so It’s definitely doable!

Moved son in to UO. Found this trail for a run. I loved the covered canopy of trees while it was raining. The steps at the end were great stair master steps and the view was excellent.

I wouldn’t rush out to do it again but it’s as good as it gets for what it is. It’s well maintained, in a super nice park, and gives you a little bit of an idea that you’re in nature and not downtown Eugene.

Amazing forest views with a bunch of wildlife and mushrooms. Low traffic too! It was fairly easy but a good challenge while carrying toddlers. Lots of ups and downs but so worth it. Awesome hidden fort too! Loved it! Only minor down side was being close to roads and homes but a great hike so close to town.

Great flat trail with bird watching and a porta potty. Beware of the rebar sticking out by the bench next to the bridge if on bike because you could pop a bike tire or trip if not looking and go to check out the habitat sign. ☹️

Beautiful in so many ways. Full of people, though, which is understandable because of how accessible and worthwhile it is. Would definitely recommend this one if you're in the area.

Love the location of this park. Close to the river and downtown, great views of the city and Spencer Butte. Not too difficult, but definitely gets you out of the hustle and bustle of urban life.

Super cool trail, loved how it wasn't busy and all of the shade it provides. Not easy but not difficult.

Good easy paved road trail. Close to downtown. Great views

Always a favorite when you need a good short hike! parking allowed at the trail head. On one side of the street only. Never had an issue.

Wonderfully maintained trail with a nice shady ascent through Douglas Firs most of the way. The steps to the top can be a challenge, but worth the view!

Great trail, 1st time back since Summer when the bear and cougar sightings were frequent and the grass was shoulder high. The grass is cut back a foot on each side now and the trail is well maintained. Dog poop in and out of bags on the trail so watch your step. All dogs we saw were on a leash which was very nice!

Nice steady incline, not particularly long with beautiful change in scenery. Highly recommend.

Great maintained trails, although the bags of dog poop and litter are always a site ruiner. Trash cans at the trail heads would help so much. There was a couple shopping carts tied together w tarps and bike parts off to the right of the parking area for the start of the trail and further in some guy asked us to “keep a lookout for his backpack he lost last night getting drunk out here”. So I wouldn’t want to be on the trails at night. Make sure to follow all signs, theres two trails leading in but the one that turns right from the path in is the right one, we kept going straight to not be right behind someone and ended up by the golf course. Bathrooms had toilet paper and were very clean!!

I would recommend this trail as a short up hill hike.

Nice easy run from the U of O campus this morning. Great soft trail that is well marked and maintained. Wonderful views of the campus.

I enjoy hiking this trail with my 4 year old son. Most of the hike is shaded and the view is incredible from the summit. Last time we were there other hikers were warning others of a rattle snake, but I have never seen one.

I really like this place, it has it all, nice trails, signs everywhere, beautiful views and a pond to refresh afterwards. Ideal for kids and dogs. I enjoy my trips there every time.

I the moderate rating is a bit on the high side, maybe the couple short up hill’s are the cause but the up hill was short stints. Nice shade cover, trails are well cared for and the vegetation was mostly fern and trees. Good neighborhood trail walking. Will cover the rest of the trails next time.

Not super difficult. I would rate it a more easy than moderate hike. there is a gravel path all the way up. the path sort of zig zags up the slope. plenty of shade and lots of wildlife. There is a neighborhood right next to it.

My “go to” hike when visiting Eugene for work. God steady uphill climb that you can ascend in 20-30 minutes depending on your conditioning (w/o running). The stone stairs the last 1/4 mile can be a little slick as there is often loose rock on them but a great view at the top makes it so worth it. I Love running down after taking in the view.

more of a walking trail than a hiking trail but a nice natural spot in the city limits.

Really enjoyed this trail. Mostly all covered in beautiful forest. Well maintained. Wild berries, and some wildlife. Not too challenging.

Brutal steady state uphill trail run.

Under construction so half the trail is closed. Once completed it will be a nice little loop again.

This was a beautiful loop trail with an opportunity to branch off to another trail system. Most of the trail was shady with areas near the summit exposed on a sunny day. We encountered many other hikers on a Monday but mountain bikes are not allowed. We would definitely do this hike again!
