  • Walk obliged if you visit Eugene, a stunning location since the beginning up to the top. It is advisable to wear comfortable clothes and boots or tennis against water since the path is a little slippery. You can reach the top and enjoy the beautiful view.

  • Lovely place to hike throughout forest with many mosses and ferns. Highly recommended place to trekking/hiking. It offers top for the gorgeous view all around.  more »
  • 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 »

  • Beautiful view of the Willamette valley. A great scenic hike for novice or experienced hikers. 1.7 mile roundtrip. Lots of parking, often very busy but a wonderful place to have a nice lunch and meet other locals.
  • Great 360 view at the top. Plenty of room at the top too. Choose either a more difficult 0.6 mile direct to the summit or an easier 1.1 mile route to the same point. The easier route also passes some nice pretty big trees.
  • Lovely place for a hike. Not too steep, but more than a walk. Gorgeous sunsets. A little crowded, but a good time.
  • Has a great view, sometimes too many ppl but worth the view. Great that it ties in to the trails in to town. Can leave straight from the house.
  • There are 2 paths to get to the top: longer but gentler climb (about 1.2 miles) on the right, or shorter and steeper climb (about .6 miles) via the path on the left. The steeper climb isn't too bad. There's one mostly dirt section that is really wide and fairly steep that is a bit tricky because there's not much to hold on to. But I'm glad I took the steeper path going up and the gentler path going down (going down on a steep path can be way more difficult). Views at the top are fantastic.

Where to stay in Eugene

Look around the downtown area and by the Willamette River for some of the most luxurious options, including impeccable hotels and resorts with extra facilities, including pools, onsite dining, and spas. Roadside motels just outside the city center provide a good option for budget-conscious travelers who want to keep on the move, but if you're looking for something in the thick of things, check out the hostels in the Whiteaker neighborhood.
