On a short trip to Eugene I wanted to run where the “real runners” run. This was a great place! I ran from my hotel along the river a couple miles to Pre’s Trail. The surface is a cushy (but not too soft) mulch. It’s...More

Very popular running trail and convenient access from the new EVEN hotel by IHG. I enjoyed taking in a run along this trail and there is plenty to see and explore. Definitely recommend.

Pre's Trail is named after the famed runner, Steve Prefontaine. It is such a great running trail which meanders through lush trees and it relatively flat. The wood chip trail is great on the knees and hips. Perfectly located between the University and Autzen Stadium...More

As a 30+ year runner with my son who's just 15, it was amazing to run the trail that Pre ran. The 4+ mile trail is in Alton Baker Park, part of a much larger trail system within the park. It had good maps and...More

If you're a runner and visiting Eugene, this is a great four-mile run (longer if you keep going toward Springfield). The path is barkomulch, and it starts at Alton Baker park. It runs past Autzen Stadium through a beautiful forested area alongside the Willamette River.

if you are a runner, you cannot miss pre's trail because of its historical meaning. If you live in Oregon, you have to run it in the summer when Eugene is 100 + to get the convection experience !

There is something very special about an early morning run on Pre's Trail. I try to run it every time I'm in Eugene. The history and aura of Prefontaine is quintessential Eugene, quintessential Oregon. Running near and over the river is awesome and the site...More
