Mount Pisgah is a summit in Willamette Valley. It is a popular place for hiking, walking, and trail running because of how close it is to the city of Eugene and Springfield. The non-profit arboretum (also known as the "living tree museum") at the bottom of the summit covers 209 acres. You can also learn about different plants and wildlife along the trails because of informational signs you'll see along the way.

There are multiple hiking trails that go off of the main trail: Main Trailhead to Summit, North Trailhead to Summit, Swing Hill Trail, and Trails #3--#7. The Swing Hill Trail has two swings hanging from oak trees at the highest point of the trail.

Admission is free, but Lane County Parks requires a $4 parking fee for each vehicle.

NOTE: Don't wander off the designated trails or paths since the area has a lot of poison oak.

*Keeping dogs on a leash is strictly enforced by Mount Pisgah Arboretum.

Mount Pisgah is a fantastic place to go for people of all ages! I have been here multiple times. I went for a school field trip when I was younger and loved it! They have great educational programs and workshops. They have informational signs along the hike to educate people about plants and wildlife. I also have been multiple times with my family. The hike is fairly easy and family friendly. They have well cared for designated trails so you're not likely to get lost. (Don't stray from the path because there is a lot of poison oak here. My brother and I have gotten it here on two separate occasions.) You feel like you're in the middle of nowhere in the woods, but you're pretty close to the city. It's a beautiful place with so many gorgeous trees. In the spring and summer, there are a lot of wildflowers! I highly recommend this place, especially if you're in the Eugene/Springfield area and are in need of a close nature getaway! :)
