Eugene Ridgeline/Rexius Trail Walk
6 km. (3.7 miles) rated easy, or 10 km. (6.2 miles) rated moderate.
The Mossbacks offer two different routes for today's walk. The 6 km. route is level, following good bark paths along both sides of Amazon Creek and going through Frank Kinny Park. The 10 km. route climbs up and though beautiful wooded hills to follow a portion of Eugene's Ridgeline Trail System; sturdy shoes are recommended. Walkers on either route should carry adequate water.
