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.

While staying at the Valley River Inn, we enjoyed daily walks along the Willamette River Trial. Tons of people out running, walking, and biking. There are several nice parks with playgrounds and restrooms. If you are fan of bird watching, this a place to go.

You can see all the sites of Eugene from a perfectly smooth, paved bike/walking path or get off of it for a little mountain bike experience.

This is a beautiful and well maintained, paved path along the river. It is multi use and everyone is very friendly whether walking, running or riding bikes. Eugene is very "bike friendly" so these paths connect with bike paths along streets so that you have miles and miles of outdoor enjoyment. Couple the path with the parks and there is... More

I grew up riding my bike around Eugene. The trails were good then, but they've gotten even better in the last 10 years or so. You can ride this flat trail for miles along the beautiful Willamette river, and make detours to stop for a snack at the Valley River Center mall or explore Alton Baker Park.

The paved path along the river is large enough for bikers as well as pedestrians. The trails are well maintained and have benches along the way to sit and enjoy the quiet.

This trail is one of my favorites. The day I walked I found the bike riders cautious, friendly and abiding by the rules. Dogs were on leashes and no litter on the trail. The views of the bridges from the trail are wonderful. You must be sure to take your camera as it is a picture taking walk. The trail... More

Great place to get out and stroll, run, ride - whatever your pleasure. It's a great way to get from River Road to downtown - surprising how short it is when you are free from the streets.

Walking this paved trail is a must do when in the Eugene area. You wander parallel to the Willamette rive and wind through parks, fields, the rose gardens and more. This is a fun way to spend a relaxing couple of hours in the area. Highly recommended.
