It's actually hard to imagine you're in the city. The city planners who created this deserve major kudos - so often a freeway or major road runs along city rivers, but in Eugene it's just a bike path, covered by trees! It's good all year, but my favorite time is late summer when I can stuff my mouth full of... More

We took the bike trail from our hotel (La Quinta) into the downtown area. The trail is well maintained and was not too crowded, although we were there during a school break so I imagine it can get crowded as Eugene is a big "bike town". Very pleasant place to ride our bikes and check out the scenery/wildlife and wave... More

Beautiful path along the River. Walkers, bikers, skaters, families, singles. Wonderful for walking with friends, and /or walking with dogs. Many options for stopping along the way, photography, birds, wildlife, exploring at your own pace.

This is a beautiful path to ride with many access points to shopping and food along the way. The path also takes you to Autzen Sradium and Cuthbert Ampitheater.

Pretty good shape of bike path. Good for bike, run or walk. People also commute on this path. Birds and mushrooms around. You can connect from paths to several neighborhoods.

The Willamette River bike trail isn't just for bicyclists, walkers, seniors to babies in strollers, and folks in wheelchairs use this paved trail. The trail provides many access points and has mileage posts ever quarter mile and winds through lovely scenery regardless where you start and end. If you prefer more managed parks, stick to the stretches between downtown and... More

Never biked it but the walk is wonderful. LOTS of birds of every feather with a few turtles thrown in. One can walk a short distance or really get a workout by doing the loop (walking each side of the river.

I ride the ten mile loop around the Willamette River often. It's beautiful. You can go a little farther but the ten miles is perfect. Lots of wild life every day and Wild Life on game day. No hills, just thrills.

If you like riding or walking near a beautiful river, looking at wildlife, etc., but don't want to drive far to do it, this path can't be beat. It's right in town, yet has spectacular scenery of the river, wildlife ponds, parks, rose garden, etc.
