Peaceful ride

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

This is a fabulous ride with no cars and can be 13 or 16 miles of flat riverside riding. Go early and there are few people and it is cooler. Ride the whole circuit and stop for a beer or just bring plenty of water.

One of my favorite things about living in Eugene is this fantastic set of trails along the Willamette. If you are a bicyclist, you can enjoy a nice long ride free from the traffic. (Although you need to watch out for pedestrians.) Runners can enjoy acces to the Prefontaine trail, which offers a nice cushioned path for your run.

Ride this trail system often. From Valley River to Beltline area is normally less congested. Often see Eagles, turtles, birds of all sorts around the side stream system. From Valley River east to Alton Baker Park, Autzen Stadium, or the UofO bike bridge there are all sorts of activities. Trails off the Washington/Jefferson bridge area lead to the Whittaker District... More

We live in West Eugene but take our bikes to Skinners Butte park or Alton Barker to hop on the bike path. Great ride on both sides of river. We usually stop along the way to watch the river. You can ride all the way to Valley River Village, past Marist HS to Valley River Center back to Alton Baker... More

This beautiful trail along both sides of the Willamette River is easily accessible from multiple points in Eugene and Springfield. It's great for accessing shopping at Valley River, the UO, downtown and Coburg Road. I use it regularly and am very happy that it's maintained for both recreation and transportation.

I recommend parking at Valley River Center along the river for easy trail access. A great 4 mile loop takes you along the river and through the delta ponds where you will see osprey, great blue heron, egrets, cormorants, geese,and an occasional great bald eagle. The path is wide enough for two way traffic, expect to see joggers, bicyclists, and... More

Great way to get across Eugene, favorite exercise trail. Have a lot of memories doing the bridge to bridge runs along the river. Now the family and dog enjoy walking along the river.
