Trail Running Oregon
by Lizann Dunegan (Falcon Guides)
This route begins at the base of Spencer Butte, follows Ridgeline Trail across Fox Hollow Road, completes a loop, and then heads back to Spencer Butte Park. Slippery wooden ramps. Escape the city and clear your lungs on a hilly section of the scenic Ridgeline Trail that begins at Spencer Butte Park. Cruise through deep forest with pockets of magnificent old-growth fir—just don’t wipe out on the slick wooden bridges! The route heads down steep switchbacks and then crosses Fox Hollow Road. After the road crossing you’ll complete a quiet forest loop where you’ll be sharing part of the trail with mountain bikers. After completing the loop the route promises a good workout when you crank back uphill to your starting point.
This urban singletrack route begins at Spencer Butte Park and heads on a blazing downhill through a scenic Douglas fir forest. The route heads northwest and crosses Willamette Street at mile 1.2. It continues along the ridgeline to the turnaround point at Blanton Road. Beware of the slick bridges on this route. This route takes you on a fun journey through an enchanting forest right in the heart of Eugene. The trail teases you by heading downhill for the first half and saving the tough uphill for the finish. This trail can be a mud fest during the winter months.
