A nice place to walk, but a bike ride would be even better. The trail is well maintained and a pleasant place for a power walk or stroll. Hard to cover a lot of ground so really would recommend doing this on a bike.

Many outstanding bike and running/jogging trails all around the city, including "Pre's Trail" referring to Steve Prefontain, a world-class long distance runner who trained in the area. Scenic trails and bike paths everywhere. So take or rent a bike or bring your running shoes!

It's hard to pick one thing about Eugene that I love the most, but if I HAD to I would say it's the bike paths around the river! We have an extensive network of river bike paths offering beautiful, tranquil scenery and lots of wildlife! Summer weekends can be crowded so go on a weekday or early in the morning.... More

Going by bike is smooth and easy in Eugene, Using the bike trails makes it a cruise. Gliding along the river, rambling through a park or speeding along side a road, this trail will take the new comer to the vast majority of places in Eugene. Get a copy of the map so that you know where your trail might... More

This is a great place to bike or walk. The city has done a great job in creating and preserving this space along the river for bikers and walkers. We have visited a couple of times from the East Coast and appreciate what they have done. We always make sure to re-visit the trail when we are here. Unlimited bicycling... More

This is a great place to ride your bike or take a walk. I often think about how lucky we are to have access to this beautiful trail in the middle of Eugene. The trail runs along the Willamette River. There are parts of the ride you feel like you are in a forest. There are two reasons I gave... More

I love the bike and walking trails around Eugene ... but early morning/evening look out ... there are homeless people to contend with ... puts a damper on wanting to go.

A nice casual ride. The river is beautiful and the climate in the summer is quite conducive a morning ride.
