This well maintained 4 mile (6.4 km) multi-use path can be accessed from either Dorris Ranch or Clearwater Park. The 10 foot wide paved path runs along the Middle Fork of the Willamette River. The path is less crowded than the Ruth Bascom Path System and is a combination of wooded area and open area with river views. Restrooms, information kiosks and free parking are located at both trailheads. There are benches along the path to sit and relax or for bird watching.

Near Jasper Road at Georgia Pacific Park, the Middle Fork Path connects to the 3 mile (4.8 km) Mill Race Path. The Mill Race Path ends just south of downtown Springfield, a short distance from Island Park and the City of Eugene trail network.
