More than 250 species of birds use the Fern Ridge Wildlife Area during different seasons of the year. The Fern Ridge Path is a 6.9 mile (11.1 km) multi-use paved path which winds through the West Eugene Wetlands and offers some of the best birding and wildlife viewing in the Eugene area. The western most trailhead, Meadowlark Prairie Trailhead, begins on Greenhill Rd and runs along Amazon Creek.

At the trailhead there are restrooms, shaded picnic tables, and a viewing area with interpretive signs. Birders who are interested in identifying bird species can pick-up a free identification booklet at our visitor center. During the wet months, be aware that some sections of the path may be prone to flooding.
