Hats Off to the Butte!
Find yourself sitting around watching the latest Netflix original while you wonder when you’re going to get up the energy to get the remote to answer the “are you still watching?” pop-up? Okay, maybe Netflix isn’t you’re jam so you’ve just permanently locked yourself in the library? I suppose it’s even possible you’re just sitting at your computer screen researching when Oregon’s weather is supposed to finally warm up?
All possibilities of what you’ve probably done in the past week, but have you been trying to get out on your feet and not be a bum for once? Even if you answer is no, listen up.
Just a short 15-minute drive from the University of Oregon, hidden in the dense woods of South Eugene is the gem of Lane County, Spencer Butte trail. It isn’t just another walk in the woods, it’s ones of those hikes that adds quality of life and adventure to people in the area. Measured as a short 2.2 mile loop, this hike is a must-do experience whether you are a student, resident or simply passing through. This hike has topped many Eugene must-do lists and is an experience that should be had by those of you who are debating how many more episodes you can binge on Netflix before you are actually mobile for the day.
