The Eugene Parks Foundation, Obsidians, and Disciples of Dirt are partnering with the city’s Parks and Open Space division to build and maintain an important Ridgeline Trail connection. This multi-use trail will extend just over a half-mile, and feature a bridge that spans one of the headwater tributaries of Amazon Creek, while connecting Fox Hollow trail with the East Dillard trailhead. This relatively small segment of trail will effectively leverage three miles of continuous trail for mountain bikers and six miles of continuous trail for hikers.
The experience of hikers and bikers will be dramatically improved by allowing safe passage to Mt. Baldy without having to traverse along the shoulder of Dillard Road. The Eugene Parks Foundation and our partners are currently raising funds for the project, through private sponsorships and grants, and is hopeful construction will begin as soon as spring 2013. Please join us to make this new trail a reality.
