  • 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 ...  more »

  • I love this place- its a long, open park along the river that has a childrens play area with this steel structure that sprays out water for kids to play in and lots of benches and tables. It has several water fountains (that work) and public restrooms that aren't terrible. There's a lot of free parking and its right across the street from the mini hike up Skinners Butte
  • Good trails. I could not find a map to know which trails went where on the hill. The river trails were well marked and mapped. When we got on the wooded hill trails there were a lot of people living on the park.
  • This is a beautiful hike. It is well forested until you reach the top making it shady and reasonably comfortable on all but the hottest days. The view of Eugene and surrounding environs from the summit is hard to beat.
  • Usually well kept grounds, seemingly fewer​ undesirable types here than many other parks in the Eugene area. The play structure is maintained quite well, trails are easily accessible, ample parking and plenty of seating area to keep an eye on your children while they play. When the weather permits, you can often find several groups bbqing just off of the trail near the river.
  • This is totally the spot where Marge and Homer went on dates and Homer smashed the weather equipment. There was once an observatory, and at multiple times, a giant cross--the KKK put it up, the damn liberals took it down. Not much to see from the top now, though there is a giant O, if you look for it. There's a drive to the top, but the best views are the trails on the southwest (especially at sunset), where you can watch the rock climbers take on the basalt columns.
