Bend to Eugene

by MichaelHitchings

We are visiting relatives in Bend, OR., and while we are here would like to travel from Eugene, OR., to San Francisco by Amtrak. Have sorted this, but want to know can we get from Bend to Eugene by bus or train?? Have looked into this but cannot find a way to do it!!

Our home is in Somerset, England. We came over last year and really loved Oregon, that's why we're returning and would love to travel down the West coast to San Francisco. So if there's anybody out there who can help us we'd be very grateful

The Amtrak website is: www.amtrak.com. There are amtrak busses running from Bend to Eugene. The train runs from Eugene to Emeryville, California. You then take another amtrak bus into San Francisco. When you get to the route box on site, just type in Bend, or BED, and San Francico, or SFO. It will also show the fare. Gary

Be advised that as of two days ago a large landslide closed the tracks from Eugene to Klamath Falls. They are saying it will take longer than expected to clear the tracks. To avoid a long bus trip from Eugene to K Falls, courtesy of Amtrak, you might just take the Greyhound from Bend to K Falls, if there is one. All passengers on Amtrak between K falls and Eugene are being bused at present.

There is certainly a contrast between rail service in the UK and the US. On my first rail trip in the UK the conductor was apologizing profusely after every stop for the train being 15 minutes late. In America the train can be 15 hours late and no one in authority seems to care. Of course a landslide is the work of nature but the truth is Amtrak, especially on the West Coast, is a disaster. Welcome to America and Amtrak.

There's an Amtrak 'Thruway' bus you can take from the Amtrak Station in Bend, 1555 N.E. Forbes Road. The price of a one-way ticket to Eugene is $28. The trip takes approximately 2.5 hours.

If you are staying in bend, with no reason to go to Eugene, you can catch the train from Chemult's, which is about 60 miles south of bend. Amtrax has a thru bus that runs this service. I have looked at doing this trip myself, and I think it would be terrific. I live in the area, and know it quiet well, even though I am origonally from Australia.
If you have any more questions you can E-mail at hando32@hotmail.com.
Would be happy to answer any questions, and If I do not know I will find out for you.

The problem with the San Francisco Bay Area is that there are a large number of stations served by various entities that connect with Amtrak. Thus, you have to be very selective about what station you select to get the best routing. There are about 5 different options for San Francisco alone, for example, including "Ferry Building" and "Financial District". There are two options for Oakland, across the bay (where the long distance Amtrak trains stop because there is no long distance railroad line across the bay, except from the south).

Amtrak is saying Coast Starlight trains are cancelled until at least Feb 1, but locally there is some noise that the line may take a month or more to repair. It is in a fairly remote area.

Travel Tips for Eugene

Visit the 5th Street Public...

by lumberjack83

Visit the 5th Street Public Market where there is an abundance of shops and enticing odors wafting from the Metropol Bakery as well as a variety of excellent restaurants. The city was named after an early pioneer named Eugene Skinner and the butte that you see off in the distance, behind the white building is named after him. It is possible to climb the butte in order to afford the view shown in the following picture. While I like this view, Skinner Butte park, which is bordered by the Willamette River, is my favorite feature of Eugene. Miles of bike paths make it a great place to walk, roller blade or bicycle leisurely or for exercise.

Home of the American Running Gods

by caffeine_induced78

Hayward field was the original University of Oregon all purpose sports field. After the completion of Autzen Stadium for football Hayward Field was used exclusively for Track and Field events. Eugene is one of the few towns in America where Track and Field events are a major draw. You can also feel the spirit of numerous distance running legends coursing through the wooden bleachers where sap once ran. Check out a U of O track meet if in town during the spring or the largest event of them all - the Prefontaine Classic. A rain coat if in the forecast.

Sahalie Falls - on the beautiful McKenzie

by caffeine_induced78

This 140 ft. waterfall on the McKenzie River is about an 85 minute drive east from Eugene. Up towards the ridges of the Cascade Mountains this is close to the headwaters, making for cold, ice fed waters. This is an area that was covered by lava flows, burying parts of the river and providing the geology needed to make these waterfalls as they pour over basalt cliffs. The surrounding greenery is even more intense than western Oregon usually is, because of the spray from the Waterfall. Sahalie is the Chinook (Native American tribe) word for "high."

I remember hiking down from Clear Lake with the family when I was about 12. My brother asked how far it was down to the falls. "It's 1.2 miles down to the falls," I said.
"How far is it back?" he asked.

We died laughing. It was a one way trail.

Hanging out on 5th Street

by lareina about Steelhead Brewery

In the vicinity of the 5th Street Market are some great places to eat. The Steelhead Brewery has a casual atmosphere that includes highbacked, cozy chairs and a British telephone booth. I recommend heading there on a sunny day (if you can find one!) to enjoy the outdoor seating and people watching. At the Steelhead, try out the microbrews and dine on typical American brewery fare such as wings, pasta, burgers, or pizza.

Groceries, Natural Foods, and Deli

by birchy99 about Market of Choice

While this store cannot compete in any way with Harrod's Food Court in London, it does a pretty good job for our little city.
The Market of Choice combines the convenience of a standard super market, and has the added feature of stocking earth friendly, body friendly, natural and organic products. They also specialize in ready to take out meals, such as meats, salads, sushi, pizza, and sandwiches plus a full scale bakery and a large wine and beer selection.
Prices are higher here but it is a fun place to shop. Sort like there's a surprise around every corner. I like the pizza for take out. They have their own varieties which include traditional and exotic such as Thai, peanut chicken.
Their produce section is excellent with a wide choice of conventional and organic products. The take out salads and entres always offer plenty of choice at a reasonable price.
