How's the hiking in Eugene? Are there nearby mountains with trails? Are there lakes? Is it all like the Sierras?

Re: Hiking

by YVRDave

I went to a Dead concert there and can't remember any mountains. There are some great dunes in Florence on the coast.

As far as I know there is plenty of hiking etc around Eugene since you are at the bottom end of the valley and are nestled between the Cascades and the Coastal ranges. There is the McKenzie River that runs into Eugene and there is lots of hiking places along there and the back regions there. Very beautiful area.

My stomping grounds!

You need one wonderful book called "100 hikes in the Central Oregon Cascades" by William Sullivan. You should be able to find it at any Eugene bookstore. I'm going to name off my favorite hikes in the area

Mt. June
Mt. Pisgah (in Howard Buford County Park)
Spencer's Butte
Mary's Peak - closer to Corvallis but a great view
Shotgun Creek

The lower portion of the McKenzie River trail should be open.

Email me with any questions. I lived in Eugene for the first 21 years of my life and was nicknamed "Granola Boy" in high school. There you go for credentials.

For lakes you will have to wait until the Summer. Then you can get up into the hight country around Waldo Lake and the Three Sisters. The mosquitos can be monsters in June and July. It's nothing like the Sierras. The Cascades are actively volcanic - that's the big difference.

No offence taken Dan.

100 Hike is a great book. There are so many hikes within 30 min drive.
My favorites...Fall Creek (although bad fire last year) and Brice Creek hikes.

Hendricks Park

by Ewingjr98

Hendricks Park sits atop a small ridge between the University of Oregon and Interstate-5 at the southeastern edge of town. Located along Summit & Skyline Dr, this is Eugene's oldest city park. Its 78 acres includes a famous rhododendron garden, a native plants garden, short hiking trails, and an overgrown overlook of the city. The Francis M. Wilkins Shelter is also available for rent by groups.

This is a popular spot to run, as it is known to have been frequented by famed University of Oregon runners such as Steve Prefontaine.

Nearby, at the Intersection of Skyline Drive and Birch Lane, is Pre's Rock, the location where runner Steve Prefontaine died in 1972. Pre's Rock is NOT in Hendricks Park!

Find out about the real Eugene ...

by otr2008 about Keystone Cafe

Small local hang-out on 5th ... open for breakfast and lunch ... menu that goes from happy vegan to burgers (and everything else you can imagine). Great place to sit by the window and watch the world go by (or at least the Eugene contingent) ... happy people enjoying great food. Vegan Powerhouse Special

Great food on the cheap!

by forbesra about New Day Bakery

More than a bakery, New Day offers plenty of options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner on the cheap. From pancakes and pastries in the morning to soup, salads, enchiladas, burritos, and sandwiches in the afternoon and evening, New Day has it all at exceptional prices. Plenty of healthy vegetarian options, too. And full of local color. New Day Bakery attracts every stripe. I usually order pancakes or French Toast for breakfast, tempeh dishes for lunch or dinner. And I always leave satisfied!

Experience a Tapa Restaurant

by birchy99 about El Vaquero

This is a new restaurant in Eugene, located in the popular Fifth Street Market. Despite its Latin sounding name it is quite eclectic. I didn't know anything about the restaurant when we first went and I was a bit put off by the Tapa menu. What I learned was that the Tapas are basically small dishes, one might equate with starters or appetizers. Each dish has a small portion for two people. We then selected three dishes then went on to dessert. For those of you with bigger appetities or those who don't like to share a full dinner menu is available, also.
The restaurant is usually pretty busy. Tables are a bit crowded together but not too bad. The wait staff is very efficent and more than ready to explain how to work the menu. The restaurant is located at the front of the Market on Fifth Street and seats at least a 100.

I do recommend reservations as it seems to be very popular. Once we got our bearings with the help of the waiter we ordered drinks. Mrs. B had her usual Manhatten by which she judges bartenders. This one was "excellent" according to her. Even though there is a fine wine selection including many local wines I chose a local micro brew on tap.
While waiting for the drinks we were presented with a small appetizer of sliced cucumbers drizzled with lime juice and a mild chile dip. A nice touch while contemplating the menu, methinks.
After some agonizing we chose a skirt steak dish, fish tacos and a vegetable plate. The vegie plate was consisted of sliced beets, avocado, and a cabbage slaw. The skirt steak came with small tortillas, chili sauce and more cabbage slaw. And the fish tacos came with a salsa and even more slaw. All were tasty and well prepared, especially the steak which was sliced and done to a nice medium.
Usually, we pass up dessert because we overeat on the entres, but because the portions are moderate in size we didn't hesitate to choose from the dessert menu. Mrs. B had large cookie that resembled an oreo with a delicious vanilla filling. I had the vanilla flan with burnt orange sauce. Both were very good. And accompanied with some very excellent coffee we had to say the evening was a success.
