Eugene Off The Beaten Path: 30 reviews and 67 photos
Take a day and soak in the glorious forested mountains just outside Eugene. Take Hwy-58 east to Westfir (stop and enjoy the covered bridge there) then Aufderheide National Scenic Byway goes over the mountains to Hwy-126 which takes you back into Eugene. Along the way stop and enjoy the river, many easy hiking trails with parking dot the road, Cougar Reservoir and the dam are enormous, if you want to spend the night there are many campgroungs.
After reaching Hwy-126 and turning left/west you'll come upon Mom's Cafe which has the BEST pie in the area ... do not miss this !
