Paved trail on both sides and can cross at bridges. Park for kids to play at in between bike ride. Seemed pretty safe although I would not want to ride close to dark because of homeless camps. Courteous bike riders and joggers.

Great views of the river and a few spots to access said river. Lots of homeless and crazies. One seemed to be at every bridge (not sure how he kept getting ahead of us) to yell obscenities at us. Trail is shared by many walkers,...More

We rented bikes from Paul's Bicycle Way of Life and used them in Cottage Grove on the Row River Trail and also on the Willamette River in Eugene. Lots to see, nice path!
