Yay for dedicated bike trails. Zoom through parks, view wildlife up close and personal, watch the drift boats on the rapids. Great fun!

I love the river trail for walking my dog and also riding my bike. We are fortunate in Eugene to have such beauty to enjoy while exercising.

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.

Lots of homeless people and trash everywhere. I would be afraid to walk this trail alone! I've nothing more to add but travelocity says I must write more!

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 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
