The Mount Pisgah area includes over 4,000 acres of natural beauty at the confluence of the middle and coast forks of the Willamette River. There are hiking trails up and around mountain. This is a very hikeable mountain, at about 1,500 feet, but it affords a nice view of the area. Two organizations do great work there: the Friends of... More

Honestly,how DOES one give a bad review to a natural attraction like a mountain. Haven't figured that out yet so good thing Mt.Pisgah and the arboretum are a wonderful place to hike and learn about the Eugene area. Today was a beautiful December day, didn't even have to wear a jacket because it was warm and sunny. Get a chance... More

A medium to mildly stenuous hike up to the top but the 360 degree views are stunning. Path is well marked, but also has a great deal of poison oak along the way. Be on the watch if you are allergic. A wonderful way to spend a 2-3 hours and really "see the scenery" of Oregon from the top.

A medium to exhaustive system of trails take you quickly up an 800 foot elevation rise to excellent panoramic views overlooking Eugene. The trails are good in all kinds of weather. You can go basically straight up or wind your way around the mountain. It is about a 1 hour trip if you are in reasonable shape. There is a... More

For a lovely trip and hike Mt. Pisgah provides a beautiful venue. Oak savannas, fir forest and open grassy hills beckon the visitor. The trails are well cared for and there are signs at each end of each trail. It is well worth your time to spend a couple of hours at this county park. Go to the summit and... More

The hike is fairly steep and there is poison oak everywhere but avoidable if you stay on the trail. The views are great and the location is near. The trail is wide and well maintained.

I was here for the mushroom festival most recently. I have also enjoyed hiking and strolling the variety of trails. The only drawback is limited toilet facilities.

Like Bald Hill in Corvallis, Pisgah is theEugene version although higher and better. Nice oaks with evergreens, im guessing lots of wildflowers in spring...the arboretum is better than Peavy in Corvallis too from what I could tell...a must hike in Eugene and if you live in Corvallis, it is worth the drive

We happily hiked this little peak to get some exercise before we sat on the plane to come home. Parking was $4, which is fine for me. The trail (old road) is actually a little steeper than I expected, but definitely a good workout. Seems like a nice trail system also. We just went to the summit and back down,... More
