Skinner Butte Lookout
There is a road to the top, but i like to access the trail entrance facing the river. Its a short hike, but nice and there are stairs to run on the west side
Beautiful views and walkable to/from downtown Eugene: urban and nature perfectly matched.
You can drive or walk from the bottom parking area to the top. A simple, short walk takes you to the top to view downtown Eugene.
“Modern coffeehouse & bar for java, craft beer & cocktails, along with creative sandwiches & salads. Don't forget the indoor shuffleboard! Open from 2:00 PM til late!”
“Eugene vibe for sure! A hearty, delicious, locally sourced breakfast and a menu that includes vegan and gluten free choices. Quite crowded on weekends, but the weekday crowd moves pretty quickly. Service is quick and someone is always filling your coffee cup. Booths seat 4 comfortably. Take money for parking meter. Eugene charges for parking most days.”
“Stunning rose garden for a "small" town like Eugene! Plus, it's right on the Willamette River and part of the funky Whiteaker Neighborhood! Stroll the gardens, along the riverfront, then into the neighborhood for a variety of dining. ”
“Restaurant complex with 3 lounges in a 1912 former train station offering American fare & live jazz. Great place for a date night!”
