Located approximately 40 minutes away from Eugene, Goodman Creek is one of the closest hiking areas in the Willamette National Forest. This 8.8 mile (14 km) out and back hike has an elevation gain of 1,850 feet (322.5 m) and is moderately crowded. Considered a low elevation hike, this trail rarely gets snow and is a good option for year-round hiking.

The trail begins by follows the Goodman Creek inlet and briefly climbs through an old growth forest. The trail leads to two small creek beds that have large log bridges for crossing. After hiking for 2 miles (3.2 km) there is a small waterfall that is the perfect spot to take a break. Please note that the waterfall is not always there and depends on the level of snow melt. There are restroom facilities at the trailhead parking lot directly off on highway 58.
