I could have biked the trail, but did not since I had bicycling on my plan for upcoming days. Found a nice rose garden to spend time photographing flowers. Many people were out enjoying the trail and I used it to visit local neighborhoods too.

Walked about 5 miles today. Just have to watch out for cyclists. Plenty of places to sit along the way. Pedestrian bridges to cross at several locations. Convenient to our hotel too.

I walk this path almost every day. Bikes, skateboards, walkers, and runners share it with plenty of cooperation. It's safe and easy to navigate.

This is what makes Eugene really amazing. 20 or more miles of uninterrupted, contiguous bike trails that are a long way from traffic and very close to the Willamette River. I and many others have used these trails to train for marathons, being able to...More

Beautiful relativity flat trail along side the Willamette River and through several parks. Lots of shade and places to stop and enjoy the scenery and you can also go through the Delta Ponds where there's wildlife to watch or photograph. There are restaurants along the...More

I had my own bike, so I didn't need to rent, but I agree will all the other comments about this. Eugene is very bicycle friendly and there are many shops in town that will rent. Best way would be to google it. It will... More
