Storm recovery efforts continue

Our crews are continuing to address hazardous trees in parks and natural areas. However, due to the extent of the damage caused by the December ice storm, this process will take time. Please continue to use caution in parks around trees.

The following trails have been cleared of high hanging broken limb hazards and are now open: Skinner Butte Trails, Martin St-Fox Hollow, Fox Hollow-Dillard Loop Trail, Dillard Connector, Spencer Butte Main Trail and Spencer Butte West Trail. Other Ridgeline Trails (52nd & Willamette-Fox Hollow, Blanton Ridge, Hendricks Park Forest Trails, Mt. Baldy and the unfinished Wild Iris Ridge Trail) remain closed until hazards can be removed.

2016 State of Eugene‚Äôs Parks Report is available. Learn about the present condition of parks, current challenges and future plans.
