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.
