Ruth Bascom Riverbank Path System

I’m a Realtor and I love the town I live in, Eugene Oregon.  I would love to show you some of the ways that I have been impressed with this town.  I am exercising in as many ways as I can and sharing what I find.  Here is Day 16!

Today was another day of exercising in Eugene.  I hopped back on my bike and headed down the Ruth Bascom Riverbank Path System.  Following along the Willamette River, and going right through Alton Baker Park, this path system connects a large portion of Eugene.  It makes it safe to travel around the town without having to share the road with vehicles (occasionally the path system does merge with the roads).  Heading northwest from Alton Baker Park you reach Skinner Butte Park; one of my kid’s favorite parks with a large play structure and water features to play on.  Skinner Butte Park was the first park that we visited when we moved to Eugene in 2016.  We were out for a bike ride on the Riverbank Path and happened upon it.

I love being able to follow the water and see the ducks and geese while I ride.

The path is always populated, but never so much that it feels crowded.  There is a great running and biking community here in Eugene.  You can see it on the trails and how well they are maintained, and you can see it on the buildings as you drive through town.


For me it helps remind me, and motivate me, to get out and move!

Rain or shine, Eugene is on the run!

Where shall I go next?  What haven’t I tried that I should?
