Forty-six miles (74 km) of shared use running paths in Eugene serve the avid trail runner, world-class track and field athlete and recreational walk-jogger alike. European-inspired bark chip running trails are prevalent throughout the city, spanning flat land and hillsides alike. Paved paths wind along the beautiful banks of the Willamette River, with multiple footbridges, mileage markers and runner-friendly amenities such as drinking fountains and restrooms.
Some of the most well-known running trails include Pre's Trail, the Amazon Trails and the Ruth Bascom Riverbank Path System (Willamette River Trail). Hiking trails in close proximity to Eugene, like the Ridgeline Trail and Mount Pisgah, are popular with trail runners. When running on chip trails, please only use fat tire jogging strollers. Bicycles are not permitted due to their excessive wear on chip trails.
