Hiking - Mount Pisgah

Sunrise is at 7:29AM, and the hike up takes about a half hour to an hour, depending on each person's pace. 

A great hike close to Eugene that offers a gradual climb, scenic views of the Willamette Valley, along with distant silohuettes of the Three Sisters and Diamond Peak.

Trail Info: The main trail for Mount Pisgah is 3.0 miles round trip and has an elevation gain of 1000'.  The trail is somewhat in comparison to Spencer Butte, which is 2.32 miles round trip with 800' of elevation gain.

We will meet at the main trail, next to the gate and kiosk at 6:00AM and leave shortly afterwards.  We will hike up together, watch the sunrise, take some pictures at the top, and then head back down. Parking at Mount Pisgah is $4 per car, and an annual permit is available at REI, Bi-Mart, as well as other local outdoor stores. The permit also covers other parks in Lane County. Great purchase if you hike often.

Please dress accordingly and bring water, a snack, and a headlamp. Bring a friend if you would like.

    Though the sun only peaked out for 2 seconds until the clouds rolled in, it was still beautiful... just beautiful. Can't wait to try it again and see the sun rise from up there :-)

      I was hoping the sun would of broke through, but it was still a great hike. I'll be sure to add a few more sunrise hikes to the calendar.

    I'm really sorry to say I'm not going to make this hike. I just got home from skiing all day and I don't think I can make it by sunrise tomorrow. I hope to see you all on another hike soon!

    Barbara, Lesley, Matthew, and Josh, you all need to fill out the RSVP forms. It takes just a few seconds.

    • Matthew H.

      Josh, thanks for taking the time to fill out the RSVP form. Greatly appreciated.

    Before I can sign up, is anyone coming from downtown Eugene that I can catch a ride with? I don't drive and have never gotten to hike Pisgah.

    January 28, 2014

    • Lesley

      I can meet you all in downtown Eugene- I'd like to carpool too if possible.

      January 31, 2014

  • Lesley

    I have hiked here before. If it happens to be pouring rain, I might decline just due to recent sickness.

    January 31, 2014

  • Cheryl B.

    Janel, may I catch a ride with you to Mt. Pisgah?

      Hi Cheryl, I think 5:25 will be perfect to get us there by 6am

      January 31, 2014

    • Cheryl B.

      I will be outside at that time. You rock Janel!

    Heidi, Barbara, and Matthew, please take the time to read the write up and fill out the RSVP form. It's quick and easy, and it also serves as a trip liability waiver.

    • Matthew H.

      Heidi, thanks for taking the time to fill out the RSVP form. I appreciate it.
