Have spent many weeks in Eugene over the past couple years and the river bike trail is a great asset. We have walked and biked a lot of it and it has all been interesting. You can be in very urban areas and then shortly be out in the woods, so to speak. Not sure how many miles there are... More

This trail offers walkers and bicyclists no traffic freedom for miles. You can experience some of the colorful residents of Eugene who tend to frequent the trail. There is a wonderful Rosegarden about halfway on the trail and numerous pedestrian bridges that crossed it Willamette river.

This is a very beautiful paved bike trail. It extends for miles along both sides of the river with some crossover points. The terrain is easy and it is a great way to enjoy a visit to Eugene.

I ride the Willamette River bike trail 2-4 times per week as I commute to work. Here's the good: It's gorgeous. It's pretty long, I think around 14 or 16 miles, round trip. It hits several neat spots, like behind the Valley River Mall, you can eat outside (or inside) at a McMenamin's right by the river as well as... More

Great place for a weekend run. Start at Alton Baker, and run east on the trail to Knickerbocker Bridge. Cross the bridge and run west up the hill, and have a coffee at Dutch Bros, and run back. Great way to start the weekend on an early Saturday morning.

Ride this path several times a week. Beautiful path along the river. Nice to breathe in nature....the sounds, sights and smells. Generally clean and safe during daylight hours.

I live just a couple of blocks away and ride or walk on the trail almost every day. It's scenic, safe, and not too crowded.

I walked with my dog for about 2 miles along the trail in the Valley River Mall area at 6:00a-7:00a and found it very quiet with only a few other walkers and cyclists. The trail is paved and wide enough to share fairly comfortably with cyclists.

Until I moved to the SF Bay area April 2015 I didn't know how much I had in the way of bike trails and walking paths all around me in Eugene that they don't have other places, even SF. In SF they have to GO placed to access the trails in Eugene they are all around. I LOVE the Willamette... More
