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.

Hearing sounds of rushing water and watching the river run through is simply breathtaking. Love watching the university runners, bikers and birds all frolick. You are close to town, yet deeply immersed in nature.

I live a block away from the Willamette River Bike Path and have walked on it everyday for years. Doesn't matter the season, it's a beautiful place to walk by yourself, with friends, children or dogs, run, bike, or just sit and watch the river. The path is 30+ miles through parks, very close to the University of Oregon and... More

The system ran all through town with bike friendly streets too. The system also runs around wetlands and a water system called Amazon creek.

Well maintained- from Rose Garden to Riverviews. Spend a few hours to enjoy the beauty of the Willamette River.

Even a beginner can navigate this nearly flat terrain for a relaxing bike ride along the river. The trail has many access points for parking and starting your ride and the city of Eugene has biking maps which show access. Wonderful in all seasons, and you can fish along the way in season if you desire ( trout and steelhead)... More

Nice paved trail that is well maintained. Our hotel was right next to it so we made use of it during our stay. It is a popular trail with lots of runners and bikers. I will say that if you're nervous about the homeless, we did see some tents near the river in one spot as well as under a... More
