Every day of our stay I was able to run a different route of the trail. The trail has beautiful scenery and is well maintained. Those using the trail are courteous. It is unfortunate there are so many homeless guys wandering on and camping in the surrounding area!

Nice 6 mile loop. Mostly shaded with many spots to stop and make side excursions on other trails if you like.

I rented a bike from the hotel I was staying at in August. Great views along the river and friendly people walking and biking

Signs were clearly marked and bridges to cross back and forth over the river

Would do it again

Simply the best urban bikeway in Oregon and that is some pretty tough competition. Once the Riverwalk is done, both sides of the river will be connected with this path. Drops you right into downtown Eugene or all the way out to Doris Ranch.

The river-path trail system is a paved multi-use path that runs along both sides of the Willamette as it passes through Eugene; and there are a number of pedestrian footbridges connecting North and South banks of the trail, and there are several parks that are connected to the trail.

I live two blocks from the trail, ride part of it daily on my bike going to work, and also walk my dogs on it twice a day most days, so for me it's a significant part of my daily experience of Eugene and I love it. The river is beautiful, most of my interactions with other trail-users are neutral at worst and very friendly at best. There are several playground-areas along the path.

That said, it's probably common sense but much of the path isn't a place I'd spend time after dark without my dogs or an intrepid friend.

Great trail for walking or biking, and very convenient on foot to nearby hotels. Easy access, although I wouldn’t recommend it at night alone.

We walked the trail on a sunny afternoon in November and it was beautiful. The trail is easily accessed from a number of points either car, bike or walking. Great views of the river and sounds of the local trains passing in the distance.

This trail was beautiful. There's different paths which, all of them clean and maintained. Benches along the way to rest if needed. There was a cougar sighting recently so be mindful of that when packing for the trip.

What a great way to get out and explore Eugene's parks. Trail system is well marked. Pedestrian bridges allow for easy crossing of river between parks on either side. Peace health bikes (blue bikes) are ready available for trail use. Rental cost worked out to about $1/mile.
