GREAT PLACE
Oct 2020
We attend the Holly ween Party in 2020. It was so much fun. Because of the virus it was a drive through party. It was so fun and so well done with different stops for entertainment and fright. A real family event for all ages. FUN FUN FUN

Lovely view along the river.
Dec 2019
There are awesome trails,all though the filbert fields that run into trails short (returns to fields) and long that run along the river all the way to Eugene. The only thing to note, it the steep trail from the parking lot to the fields. There is a s couple of lovely open grass area, one bench for seating at the top and past the barn, at the base of the fields (still a little walk).

Geo cache day
Sep 2019 • Family
Out for a walk searching for geo caches. Nice area for just walking around. Great 4 mile bike path to Clearwater park along the Willamette river. And more geo caches there. Grand kids have a good time there.

Every city needs a park like this
Aug 2019
I can't say enough about this park. The groves and Dorris house are on the National register. Lots of dogs and their masters. Only gripe: bicycles share all the paths, and by share I mean ruin.

Eautiful place to take a walk
Jul 2019 • Family
Easy trails, stroller accessible, through the orchards of old hazelnut trees wind down toward the river. Peaceful setting perfect for walking, bicycling, and walking your dog.

Nice big park
Jun 2019 • Family
This is definitely one of the bigger parks in Eugene, it is very peaceful and a fun excursion for the kids. If you keep walking you'll end up on the biking path, which is a nice long walk/jog/run/biking excursion along the river. It doesn't look back to the ranch, I don't believe so anyway, so you have to turn around at some point.

Nice trails - Biking trails - river walk
May 2019 • Family
This is a super easy walk. There is some information at the start of things you might see. We tried looking for some wildlife but failed to find the owl that we wanted to find. I would like to bike the trails here I think I would have liked it better than the walk. Not our family kind of thing to do. I would be nice though for couples or some romantic outings.

Family fun and adventure
Jan 2019 • Friends
Dorris Ranch is an all day outing for a family. Located right on the river. Load up the kids, a picnic lunch, tenna shoes and head on out for a day of fun.

I love the fact that the orchards are still active and provide a great educational venue for children. The trail at the entrance to Dorris Ranch is asphalt and easily accommodates a stroller or wheel chair. It is wide enough that the family can walk together. I have rarely seen a dog off leash. Lots of benches to sit rest and take in the views.

Do not leave any valuables in the car. At the beginning of the river trail there are bathrooms and drinking faucets.

I usually spend most all of the day there. No public transportation to the ranch.

Walked thru filbert trees
Aug 2018 • Friends
My friend and I met up at Dorris Ranch and then walked thru the filbert trees ... a few filberts fell down as we were walking. Hooked up to walking path which takes you by part of the river. Fun!
