Great way to break up a conference
Aug 2021
I rented a bike from the hotel I was staying at in August. Great views along the river and friendly people walking and biking

Signs were clearly marked and bridges to cross back and forth over the river

Would do it again

Best Urban Path
Aug 2020
Simply the best urban bikeway in Oregon and that is some pretty tough competition. Once the Riverwalk is done, both sides of the river will be connected with this path. Drops you right into downtown Eugene or all the way out to Doris Ranch.

Wonderful feature of Eugene
Jan 2020
The river-path trail system is a paved multi-use path that runs along both sides of the Willamette as it passes through Eugene; and there are a number of pedestrian footbridges connecting North and South banks of the trail, and there are several parks that are connected to the trail.

I live two blocks from the trail, ride part of it daily on my bike going to work, and also walk my dogs on it twice a day most days, so for me it's a significant part of my daily experience of Eugene and I love it. The river is beautiful, most of my interactions with other trail-users are neutral at worst and very friendly at best. There are several playground-areas along the path.

That said, it's probably common sense but much of the path isn't a place I'd spend time after dark without my dogs or an intrepid friend.

First time visit on a quick 2-day trip

Great trail for walking or biking, and very convenient on foot to nearby hotels. Easy access, although I wouldn’t recommend it at night alone.

Lovely area for a walk

We walked the trail on a sunny afternoon in November and it was beautiful. The trail is easily accessed from a number of points either car, bike or walking. Great views of the river and sounds of the local trains passing in the distance.

Beautiful trail

This trail was beautiful. There's different paths which, all of them clean and maintained. Benches along the way to rest if needed. There was a cougar sighting recently so be mindful of that when packing for the trip.

Great trail system!
Oct 2019 • Friends
What a great way to get out and explore Eugene's parks. Trail system is well marked. Pedestrian bridges allow for easy crossing of river between parks on either side. Peace health bikes (blue bikes) are ready available for trail use. Rental cost worked out to about $1/mile.

Beautiful Surroundings

Best walk you can ride your bike also and it’s dog friendly. Take your time enjoy the season around you. But also sadly Be aware of your surroundings. Unfortunately there are some homeless.

Relaxing Bike Paths That Actually Go Somewhere
Sep 2019
The Willamette River is a real treasure in Eugene, and the bike paths along the river are the jewel in the crown. The paths are well-maintained, with no sharp gradients, so the riding is easy and pleasant. They run on either side of the river through Eugene, and link to established bike paths through the rest of the city.

The paths are great to get from one place to another, but also a joy just to ride on for pleasure.

CAUTION:
If you happen to venture onto the bike paths with a huge Newfoundland hound, particularly one called Yum Yum, be prepared to go nowhere much at all. "Awww! Isn't he lovely? And isn't he huuuuge?" is all you'll hear.

That caution is obviously a hypothetical, since there is only one Yum Yum. but if you actually encounter Yum Yum near the bike path, you'll see what I mean. He loves a tickle under the chin.
