Was about a 7 mile ride round trip from Mosby creek trailhead to Dorena lake and back . It is completely paved but there were areas where a horse can comfortably walk on the grass next to the trail . Yummy apple trees adorn the trail side to compete with you for your horses attention . Rode down to the water carefully avoiding the wet spots (slippery mud) . Let the horses drink a bit from the rocky dry part . It was pretty neat to see the huge dam and lake . Only one boat was out becuase it was freakin hot and Smokey - but still beautiful . One of those trails that u wouldn’t necessarily seek out unless u live near it - but if u have to go to the neighborhood for some reason might as well saddle up ! There are a lot of bikes and most just zip by - with no understanding to be cautious of the horses . But that’s ok . It works !
Parking for this trail is convenient and free at the public lot on B and 2nd St. by the skate park. The trail is all paved, well traveled, mostly flat, and only has a few minor hills. You do have to cross some streets, but the trail is designated, cared for, and safe. There was a small homeless camp in the first field we passed, but no one bothered us. The park is pretty and there was even a beaver running around munching on grass, not bothered in the least by all the passers-by stopping to photograph it. The trail also goes through some pretty residential areas. The only bumpy part was near the park, where some of the roots of the bigger trees are buckling the asphalt. It was hot, but everyone was friendly (walkers, joggers, and cyclists alike), and everyone was courteous with the space. We will definitely take this ride again.
There is a slight downhill slope on the way towards campus so be aware if you're a newbie rollerskater.
Enjoyed this trail from beginning to end. Well maintained with beautiful views of wooded hillsides, covered bridges, old barns, river, flowers, farmland, and the lake. Stayed in Schwarz Park campground about MP 6 of the trail. Accessed the trail about 1/2 mile from campground. First day rode from camp to top end of trail around the lake and up through the farmlands. Second day from camp to town for coffee and baked goodies at the brewery. Afternoons spent exploring the wineries. Very much enjoyed this trail.
We took our seven-year-old son and nine-year-old daughter on this trail recently. There are several places where you have to cross roads, but our kids are comfortable with this type of riding, so it felt safe. It's really nice that you can stop at parks along the way for a break. We had a great time.
Lovely paved trail spoiled by lots of homeless. Looks like the city is trying to keep the trash picked up but the this is all Graffiti spoils the ride.
Beautiful shady trail lined with wildflowers. Nice flat trail with lots of pretty scenery.
Easy trail with good views
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 trail is smooth pavement with a very gentle grade. Beautiful views and country all along the way.
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.
