West Eugene

If you want to see what much of the Willamette Valley looked like before colonization, the 2,500-acre West Eugene Wetlands give you that look into the past. Paved paths travel through wide-open marshy prairies full of birds and wildflowers. In the evenings, the sounds of frogs and birds make this a serene place to stroll or roll. 

Before journeying through the wetlands, grab a hearty breakfast and a coffee at Coffee Plant Roasters or Bagel Sphere. Afterward, grab a treat from Euphoria Chocolate Co. or a pint of mead at Viking Braggot

For a more challenging hike, explore Wild Iris Ridge before heading out to nearby wine country
