Ruth Bascom Riverbank Path / North Bank (Alton Baker Park) Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This 2.0-mile segment of the 5.0-mile North Bank Path follows the Willamette River through Alton Baker Park, Eugene’s largest park. The park entrance area, with its duck ponds and the DeFazio Footbridge, makes an outstanding starting point. The turnaround is located at the Knickerbocker Footbridge, near the I-5 overpass.
From the parking area in Alton Baker Park, walk toward the restrooms and then past the duck ponds to the river. The trail starts at the DeFazio Footbridge (named for Peter DeFazio, longtime US congressman from Eugene)."
