  • Spencer Butte is a nice hike in south Eugene that gives you a 360 degree view of the area. There is a decent sized parking lot as well as port-a-potties at the trailhead. I did the steep trail on the ...  more »
  • I was only in Eugene for a day and decided to hike up Spencer Butte. I live in FL so it was a bit of an unlikely hiker for this kind of terrain but never the less, myself and my boyfriend chose the "d...  more »
  • We went up the shorter, difficult trail. It's steep, don't take without good hiking shoes and water. Great 360 views from the top! We took the longer, we'll-maintained trail down.  more »

  • A regular stomping ground for active locals. On warm, sunny days it can get crowded at the summit! A good view of the surrounding area and beyond! For visitors out of town: A MUST! Two (unofficially, three) ways to get to the top: short and steep, or longer and gradual. A good workout. And now that the section near the summit is nicely renovated with proper steps, away from poison oak it's safer for older hikers and children.
  • I've hiked this hill at least a thousand times in the last decade...who knows how many more in the decade before that? It's a magical place, long featured in Eugene's history, and well worth the visit. You can enjoy a 1000 foot vertical climb up to the best perch in the south valley...all in an hour and a half. If you go, don't leave anything behind and take good care of this very special local resource!
  • Beautiful hike! Even after having it rain most of the morning it was fine to hike in sneakers. A bit steep at times but the view was totally worth it! Dog friendly and clean trails. This will definitely become a regular spot!
  • I like to run up to the top from the parking lot because it's challenging and around a mile or so each way. You'll encounter all types hiking to the top including babies on the backs of one of their parent. Recently the park added steps toward the summit making it much easy to get to the view point. Be careful of poison oak on the sides of the path at the top.
  • Great little hike. It's just over a mile to the top, but it's a good climb that'll take your breath away.
