Wonderful ride through the West Eugene Wetlands. Links up with other well established sidewalks and paths to make a longer ride. I love dedicated trails like this, wish they existed in every city.
This paved path has great signage, as long as you know which parking lot you parked in. It would be really hard to get lost. Families and friendly people on the way. Cell service not great there, so plan ahead. 5 parking areas that I counted and some porta potties. I'll be back!
Anytime I come across a couple of goats going for a walk, I just know I’m on the right trail! So many friendly people and some serious athleticism going on there, too. The path might be short but has some inclines that seem to produce a bit of perspiration. I loved the trail and will be back again. Hopefully see those sweet goats again!
Most everybody has a smile and a nice wish for the day! Well taken care of path that’s a joy to ride.
I rode this trail a couple weeks ago. It is fine. When we lived in Eugene I rode it a lot. I’ve not explored the Springfield part (east of I-5). It can be a bit crowded, so is better suited for a mountain bike and not my LWB recumbent.
I'd give this short hike a 5, but it was poorly marked. That being said - I highly doubt you'll get lost. A real jewel, just outside the city of Corvallis. You can stay on the paved trail out in the meadows, or take a somewhat steep side trail through the gorgeous oaks and pines. and get a quick 20 minute cardio fix. There are flowers in the open fields and in the summer, abundant blackberries along the trail. You'll emerge from the thick woods at the top of hill, which is truly bald - e.g., a few beautiful oaks, and just lovely grass and fields of Queen Anne's Lace. It's a must to take a break on the well maintained bench at the top that looks over an incredible hilly view that's reminiscent of the Scottish moors.
I biked here from Benton County Fairground via downtown Corvallis. The path meandered through baseball fields, soccer fields, a kids playground, the wastewater treatment plant, and then by a very cool neighborhood. Coming back, I took some dirt routes and found a great place to hang out by the river. I suspect there are lots of places like that to discover. This path veers off in a lot of different directions. You could spend all day here exploring.
this walk is awesome and a great view but it is a Wildlife Refuge so you would not take dogs on walks or runs here. highly recommend.
It wasn't until I got back from running this nice little trail that I saw the sign "no pets, no bikes, and no jogging" plus it isn't really much of a loop. I was hoping to run around it a couple times but saw the sign and stopped after 1 time through. Otherwise it's very well kept and beautiful scenery.
Loved the variety of trails and places to wander off into, not just totally straight paths. Rode by a dog park. But a couple days ago there was a cougar sighting, so we only biked for 4 miles. Would like to try it again.
We rode this trail on June 22, it was quite busy for a weekday. However, it is near the university and I suspect used by students and facility. The trail is in good condition. However, it has a number of spurs and it could use better directional information. However, it was an enjoyable ride.
A good restaurant, called McMenamins North Bank is on the north side of the river and we strongly recommend it.
Not a pet friendly trail so if you are planning on taking your pet hiking with you do not go to this trail.
