This wide gravel path climbs relentlessly through oak woodlands to the summit of Mount Pisgah. Views. Just outside Eugene’s city limits, this steep, intense route takes you to the summit of 1,516-foot Mount Pisgah. This route is not for the average trail runner— you have to truly enjoy searing cardio workouts to take on this beast. At the summit a bronze marker points out views of distant mountain peaks. You’ll return on a blazing fast downhill dash on the same route back to the trailhead. (Your knees may appreciate a gentle lope down the steeper grades.)

A bit crowded, even on weekdays, otherwise 5 star. THe variety of routes to the summit provide scenic diversity, crowd mitigation and a choice of physical challenges - easy to moderate. Grand view looking north through southwest when the sky is clear - rare thing here apparently.
