With beautiful wildflowers and panoramic views of the Cascade Mountains, Creswell, Camas Swale, Spencer Butte and downtown Eugene, the trails around Mt. Baldy are well loved. For the last two months, our in-house trail building team has been working on the installation of a retaining wall around a bench and construction of a new set of stairs on the "spine trail."
This segment of the Ridgeline Trail System has been historically problematic. Due to the steepness of the trail, it is the only section without year-round gravel. The new wooden stairs are a great improvement, offering trail users a safe and reliable way to reach the summit regardless of the weather.
