Great place to make love, just watch out for the poison oak. Youch! Got it in some weird places, if you know what I mean. Wonderful view of the valley, reasonable hike. Definitely check out the tribute from Ken Kesey atop to his son Jed.

It was quite sunny on the day my brother and I went hiking at Mount Pisgah, but the trail was so beautiful. It was not crowded either, so we were able to take our time to take some wonderful photos.

This is a wonderful addition to places to go around Eugene. The new bird blind has just opened and the work by the volunteers is as good as hiking to the to of the hill. Lots of vegetation, lots of people.

Sure, you can drive for an hour or more and be in the spectacular Cascades, but if you're looking for some great in-town hiking, Mt Pisgah is the place for you. There are sedate gravel paths in the arboretum proper; plus longer, more rugged trails in the surrounding Howard Buford Recreational Area. You can do a strenuous 10 mile circuit... More

Whether you want to hike up hills or stay on the level, this park has you covered. And it is enjoyable to see all the different plants too. Being located along a small river is a big plus. Pets welcomed.

Easy to get to from Eugene or Springfield. 1000 foot climb in 1.5 miles to summit is a good workout. Great views from the top.

Great hike with many options. Trails are generally well travelled and easy to traverse. The markers are easy to view and maps are available, benches allow for rest at various points on the trail and restroom facilities are available. The area has been beautifully maintained while staying in it's natural state. Once you reach the summit you have a fantastic... More

Never go alone, always be prepared. Bring a group of 3 or more. Steep hike to the top but beautiful views when you get there. Parking is 3$ and you must pay.
