[ARCHIVED] Answer the call to fall outdoor activities

Family rafting on the Willamette

There are still opportunities to enjoy the outdoors with the Eugene Recreation this fall. On Sept. 28, join a river guide from the City’s Outdoor Program and paddle raft down the Willamette River from Island Park to the River House.

On Oct. 5, the Outdoor program offers a raft trip down the McKenzie River that includes a stop at the Leaburg fish hatchery to see salmon spawning. And on Oct. 6, you can explore the southern shore of Waldo lake, one of the purest lakes in the world, in the Spirit of Eugene, a highly stable 29-foot canoe.

Take a drive into the Cascade Mountains with the Adaptive recreation program on Oct. 5 and then enjoy a leisurely walk along Waldo Lake, or hike to the Salt Creek Falls on Oct. 6. Both of those hikes are designed for individuals with disabilities.

Recreation’s Adult and Senior Program also offers fall hikes for adults age 50 and older. The Larison Creek Hike on Sept. 24 follows Larison creek through a towering Douglas Fir forest. On Oct. 7, the Elijah Bristow Hike will take you along the banks of the Willamette River. Or enjoy beautiful sand dunes as you hike to a secluded beach on a moderate, 3-mile coastal hike on Oct. 16.

For more information on the raft/canoe trips, please contact the Outdoor Program 541-682-5329. For information about the hikes, contact Adaptive Recreation, 541-682-5311 or the Adult Services program, 541-682-5318.
