I ride a 20-mile look several times a week on my bike. We walk often. Well-maintained pavement and asphalt surface. Right along the river, traveling through several city parks, beautifully landscaped. Lots of place to picnic.

The people involved in creating this resource have left a legacy. This is such a great way to exercise, commute, birdwatch or just have a relaxing walk. It winds along the river and connects you to downtown, the university, north Eugene. There are bathrooms, kids play areas, water fountains and it's fairly well lit at night. I just got back... More

This bike path is my favorite in Eugene. The path goes right along the river so you get the beautiful scenery & its tree-lined so it helps to keep it cool in the summer.

We walked after dark because it was November! I felt very safe and among friends. My son and I walked from the hotel were we stayed and saw signs of a run/walk event planned for the next morning.

I hesitate to review this bike trail for fear it may become too popular. Living in Eugene I have access year round so may not appreciate it as I should. But said straight, it is a delight to mosey along this trail that follows along the Willamette River on both sides for approx. 6-8 miles, depending on your time and... More

We walked this trail from campus over to Autzen Stadium and I was impressed with how scenic it was. It was nice walking through the gardens and along the river. Not sure how many other schools have stadiums that have such a great scenic trail to get to them.

This paved trail runs along the river past parks, flower gardens, playgrounds, pools, and other natural areas. So much to do along the way. There are play structures for children, soccer fields, fishing spots, picnic areas, bridges across the river with vistas up and down the river. You will find families, friends, couples, and individuals enjoying the trail. It is... More

The bike paths hug both sides of the river from Delta Ponds (north of Valley River) all the way to Springfield. There are stretches where the path sneaks inland, but there are river views most of the way. These paths are heavily utilized because they lead to many of Eugene's top destinations: downtown, University of Oregon, Autzen Stadium, Valley River... More

Definitely a beautiful walk. Go over the bridge and enjoy all of the runners out as well as the beautiful park.
