“One of the shining jewels of Lane County”
Mount Pisgah Arboretum is a 209-acre living tree museum. Its riverside trails, quiet paths through evergreen forests, water garden teeming with life, bright wildflower meadows, and open views across oak savannas delight all ages. Located within Lane County's Howard Buford Recreation Area, the Arboretum lies between the Coast Fork of the Willamette River and the slopes of Mount Pisgah. Open dawn through dusk, every day of the year.
This 209-ac site includes one of the best remaining examples of oak woodland and savanna in the Willamette Valley, as well as river riparian, mixed conifer/deciduous forest, and wildflower meadows. Watch for Pileated Woodpecker, Hairy Woodpecker, Great Blue Heron, Western Wood- Pewee, Western Meadowlark, Lazuli Bunting, and, in winter, numerous sparrow species. More than 9 mi of well-maintained trails provide ample access. Classes and guided walks are available; the Arboretum also hosts a spring Wildflower Festival and a fall Mushroom Festival. A $2 daily parking fee applies. The arboretum is part of the Howard Buford Recreation Area. From Eugene, follow 30th Ave in a SE direction, past Lane Community College.
