The Newest Section of the Ridgeline Trail Open

Celebrate the Ridgeline Trail System's newest addition. The recently-completed 1.3 mile shared-use trail opens up the new 250-acre Wild Iris Ridge Park in Southwest Eugene for all to enjoy.

The grand opening celebration took place on Tuesday, October 24. Mayor Vinis officially opened the trail at 11 a.m., and guests then explored the park on their own or took a tour with members of the Eugene Parks ecological services team to learn more about how the site was transformed and what's up next.

See the new Ridgeline Trail Map for details about the new trail and the entire Ridgeline Trail System.
