Spencer Butte (elevation 2052 Ft.) is probably the most prominent landmark in Eugene. A majority of area residents have hiked up the steep trail. Enjoy the forest from the trail as you hike up through the Douglas fir trees. Amazing views of the Southern Willamette Valley are enjoyed from the summit. The top of the butte is actually above the tree-line and consists mainly of rock formations and grass.
