Biking to MPA
Visitors arriving by bike do not have to pay any parking or day-use fees. (You can save the planet and save cash at the same time!)
There are bike racks in two locations on site: near the parking circle at the south end of the parking lot, and by the base of the west trailhead.
Bike riding is not allowed on the trails in the Arboretum. Bring your bike lock so you can explore the trails on foot at your leisure.
What bike routes can you use to get to Mount Pisgah?
For a short ride, take any of the local buses to Lane Community College. It’s just a 4 mile ride from the bus stop there, mostly flat.
Up for a longer ride? Here’s a mostly-flat 8-mile route from downtown Eugene to the Arboretum. Be alert when riding along Franklin Blvd, the cars go fast and some sections have narrow shoulder.
Like climbing hills? The ride from south Eugene over 30th Avenue has wide shoulders that are nice and debris-free. Put it in your lowest gear and enjoy the view!
Coming from Springfield? Lack of bridges across the river means you’ll have to come south on Franklin Boulevard to the west entrance of the park. Again, be alert around the fast traffic along Franklin.
