The Amazon Path is a concrete, multi-use trail that runs along the corridor of the Amazon Creek in southern Eugene, Oregon. The trail forms the backbone of the city's Amazon Active Transportation Corridor Project, an effort to improve bike and pedestrian connectivity from the parks and nature trails in the south to downtown Eugene and the popular Ruth Bascom Riverbank Trail System.
Running for just under two miles, the trail offers a retreat from the surrounding suburban residential environment, taking trail users through the pleasant open space of Amazon Park, a recreational hub with a community pool, skatepark, and a popular natural surface running trail that allow you to explore a wooded preserve along the creek - another running trail continues south along the creek out of the park, providing even more opportunities for exercise and recreation. The trail begins in the south at Tugman Park, a nice neighborhood park with plenty of space for picnics or outdoor activities, and ends just past Amazon Park at 19th Avenue, right next to South Eugene High School. Helping provide off-road access to local schools, recreation sites, and the southern edge of the city's downtown, the Amazon Path packs a lot of punch despite its relatively short length.
Parking and restrooms are available at Amazon Park, located at 2700 Hilyard Street. The trail route is also serviced by several of the city's bus lines; check with the local transit authority for up-to-date information.
