The Willamette River bike path is the best way to travel in Eugene. It runs 7 miles on both sides of the river, and is an easy way to get to the parks, museums, UofO, brewpubs & Autzen Stadium. It's picturesque, shady in many places, mostly flat & a lovely way to travel

Nice trail along the river with pedestrians, joggers, & cyclists. Very scenic & nice grassy spots to picnic or just lay out.

I love the bike trail. It's great for families, alone or with anyone. You can go as far as Springfield or out to the River Road. It's not difficult at all and there are places to rest along the way. Rent a bike at Paul's Way of Life. Have fun!

Love to ride the Willamette River bike path. Can start at the Rose Gardens and loop all the way around to the other side, either going beyond Valley River and back over the river to return, or cutting it short at the mall and crossing that bridge. Long way is a good 12 mile ride with both sunny and shady... More

Scenic, peaceful and interesting. It was right outside our hotel with easy access. If you are walking, watch for bikes. Some riders think they own the trail.

Took this path to and from the office from Valley River Inn. What a way to relax... Everyone I met on the way was friendly, smiling and saying "Hello"s.

I walk it every week, rain or shine, and marvel at the many moods of the river. A special treat is watching the rose garden through the seasons.

The trail along the river is wonderful. Take the time to walk the trail - and try different sections. It is well maintained, and really beautiful!

I loved the trails, many to choose from, lots of people out and about on them so I felt safe and there was beautiful landscape to look at. The houses that line the river are beautiful and the sunset was gorgeous. The trails are something that will bring me back for sure.
