Eugene to Crest Trail #3559


This concept of providing a continuous trail beginning from Eugene, Oregon to the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail began in the early 1970's. Not all segments of the trail are connected or completed. Eventually it will connect the cities and towns of Eugene, Springfield, Jasper, Dexter, Lowell and Oakridge. Many trail segments already exist, as they are part of the Forest Service trail system.

A variety of terrain is covered as experienced in an elevation gain of 5,100 feet. It follows the Middle Fork of the Willamette River, other streams and goes by numerous lakes, mountains and meadows. The many access points allow the hiker to plan single or multiple day trips.
