My wife and I went for a ride and took this trail as opposed to our usual trek in South Eugene. There was a surprising number of camps just off the trail and we noticed several syringes when we walked off the path towards the river. Nope! Time to get back on the path and on our merry way.

Far too many careless and fast eBikes and scooters for safety. I finally got used to people walking their dogs with no leash and now motorized vehicles. Be very aware of any Eugene "e" bikes flying by.

My wife and I love to ride bicycles when we travel, renting our bikes at either an "urban bike" location or from a local bike shop. While in Eugene visiting our son and daughter-in-law, we rented bikes from Paul's Bicycle Way of Life on 556 Charnelton St and headed to the Willamette River bike trail.

The Willamette River bike trail s actually miles and miles of bike / pedestrian paved paths that go up and down and across the Willamette. While we shared the trail with many other cyclists, there were also scores of walkers/runners/joggers, skaters, and even several folks using their walkers. One of the neatest things beside the amazing scenery along the fast moving river was the respect and courtesy shown by the users on the trail. Even with the trails crowded with all kinds of users, our take away was the serene and peaceful feeling that we had when we finished.

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.

This a beautiful trail featuring, of course, various river crossings with lovely scenery; a great rose garden (don’t forget to walk your bikes); bird and turtle preserves; and a few river side restaurants (views better than the food). There are lovely spots to relax along the trail and enjoy a snack - something we do 2 or 3 times during the summer.
It is an easy ride - flat - great for families!

This bike trail is a pleasure to ride on. Well maintained and absolutely beautiful, you can spend a good hour going through a magnificent system of parks around the Willamette river, enjoying nature.
Very Eugenian: the trail is shared by bikers and walkers, don't forget to announce in loud voice ... "passing on your left..." ;-)

Beautiful relativity flat trail along side the Willamette River and through several parks. Lots of shade and places to stop and enjoy the scenery and you can also go through the Delta Ponds where there's wildlife to watch or photograph. There are restaurants along the trail for a drink or a meal, where you can keep a eye on your bike while you're enjoying the view.

I really just cannot express how absolutely aggravating it is to try and ride a bike towing a trailer with 2 kids and having to stop every 10 feet because people are walking in a row across path blocking the bicyclists!!!! We need the momentum of down hill to gain speed to make it up the next hill. When we have to constantly stop it makes the ride most unpleasant. The real added aggravations lie in the walkers treating the bicyclists as the problem when the walkers should be off the dang road!!!

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

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.
