Discover Your Place in Nature !
Mount Pisgah Arboretum is a 209-acre nature education facility where visitors can explore the ecology of the southern Willamette Valley. The Arboretum is a nonprofit organization that relies on community support from hundreds of volunteers and over 1500 members to maintain a 209-acre nature facility at the heart of the 2200-acre Howard Buford Recreation Area. We lease these 209 acres from Lane County. The largest portion of our funding comes from individual donations and memberships.

TRAIL HEAD: https://www.alltrails.com/trail/us/oregon/mt-pisgah
Try this 3.3-mile out-and-back trail near Eugene, Oregon. Generally considered a moderately challenging route, it takes an average of 1 h 49 min to complete. This is a very popular area for birding, hiking, and trail running, so you'll likely encounter other people while exploring. The best times to visit this trail are March through November. Dogs are welcome, but must be on a leash.
Molly's Trail Notes: As a Portland Resident, our city's Hoyt Arboretum is 190 Acres of Forest. However, after an hour, walking along the Willamette River, inside the protected old trees of Mt Pisgah, the sunlit greens, yellows and blues that fill your sight as you walk, brought me to tears. The last time that happened, I was standing on a mound high above the Boyne Valley in Ireland.
WHY YOU WILL LOVE IT: You can bring your dogs on leash first of all! Enjoy pristine views, and exquisite paths and trails, all there for you to discover more in a day's hike than you may have seen in quite a while. After one visit I hope to return many times this year.
