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.
Be courteous, informed, and prepared. Read trailhead guidelines, stay on the trail, and don't feed the wildlife.Read More
