Skinner Butte is an absolutely gorgeous hike! On sunny days, you can see the entirety of Eugene laid out right in front of you. There are all kinds of places to picnic/sit/relax, and there are always very cute dogs. At the base of Skinner Butte there are some outstanding rock columns that a lot of people rock climb on, and...
