Although I did not ride a bike, I walked the trail. The trail was a peaceful experience. Lots of friendly people on the trail.

This is one of my very favorite bits of Eugene. The trails go up and down and across the Willamette with many options for doing loops and so not having to backtrack. The trails are all paved and go on for miles. They are also...More

We spent the day riding along the Willamette River and it was great! The path is paved and mostly flat with views of the river all along the way. You can go for a short ride or a longer ride as desired. The best part...More

Such a beautiful trail to bike ride with the family. Nice benches along the way for breaks and good picnic spots.

I think this trail is the best thing that Eugene could have done for tourism. It is nice a fairly flat, beautiful scenery along the river, plenty of bridges to go from one side to the other.

Love the bike trail. You can get almost anywhere in town using the bike trail with very minimal branching out to traffic bike lanes.

See the headline. We were there on the first good weather in a week, so there were bikers, walkers, skate boarders and skaters. Trail is on both sides of the river. It could be better marked with distances.

Very pretty mostly flat bike path but may be crowded with families on bikes, walkers with dogs on and off leash and others simply enjoying the space.

I love the fact that this is a bike town. We're coming up to visit University of Oregon next month and want to enjoy biking around the trails and stuff, but I'm wondering if there are bike rental places in town? I really don't want to drag our bikes up from San Diego, so I'm wondering if we can rent them there.
