[ARCHIVED] Ridgeline Park System and Skinner Butte Summit Reopen After 10-Day Closure

Due to recent rainfall and more expected, the City of Eugene Parks and Open Space Division has reopened both the entire Ridgeline Park System as well as Skinner Butte Summit in downtown Eugene as of Friday, Sept. 18.

Although the fire danger level has been downgraded from extreme to high, the risk of wildfire remains and fire resources are stretched thin. The public is asked to strictly adhere to the no open fires, no fireworks, and no smoking rules that apply to all of Eugene’s parks and natural areas. Parks staff are working to remove park closed signs today.

Ridgeline Park System

Eugene’s Ridgeline Park system rings the southern edge of the city with a series of large, semi-connected parklands. Valued deeply by the community for recreation, open space, and habitat values, the Ridgeline system is accessed through a network of over 12 miles of trail starting at seven main trailheads.

The Ridgeline Park System is made up of:

  • Amazon Headwaters
  • Blanton Ridge
  • Bloomberg
  • Coryell Ridge
  • Erin Noble
  • Hendricks Park
  • Laurelwood
  • Moon Mountain
  • Mt. Baldy
  • Murray Hill
  • Ribbon Trail
  • South Eugene Meadows
  • Spencer Butte
  • Suzanne Arlie Park
  • Wild Iris Ridge
