The river walk extends from downtown along the Willamette river. The trail is wide enough for joggers, walkers, and bicyclists. There are many beautiful giant trees along the shore of the river, an ancient cherry tree, and a flower garden with roses and flowering trees,...More

Walked from hotel. Several walkers and bikers. Disappointing to see garbage tossed and a few camp sites. Bikers were respectful of walkers sharing the path. Great river views and watching the ducks. Some road noise but still peaceful

The river views are wonderful. Most stretches are quiet and serene, some have road noise but that can be avoided. It's all paved wide paths with very gentle terrain to accommodate easy walking. Bikes and walkers seem to accommodate each other politely, just watch out...More

Perfect place to get your 10,000 steps. Peaceful flat smooth walking path. There are bikes but they are respectful of the walkers.

This lovely river trail runs between Eugene and Springfield along the river for most of the time. The path is great for walking, running, and things with wheels. Enjoy the wildlife, the beautiful greenery and parks with restrooms (closed in winter) that you pass thru/by.

One of the greatest things that Eugene Oregon has going is the bike path along the river. An excellent place to walk or ride a bike. Lots of places to sit a while and just enjoy the scenery or people watch. You can bring a...More

I enjoyed a nice ride on the bike paths around Eugene. This is a great area to get around by bike. You can easily travel around Eugene via the excellent network of dedicated bike paths and designated bike routes.

I tried to send you the oregon.gov and eugene.gov website that gives all the bikepaths but annoyingly Trip Advisor won't allow me to send the link. Just know that there is a website, good luck!
