Ascent Trip Report

This very short walk of about 100 yards is in a Protected Natural Area managed by the City of Eugene (per a sign along the trail). Nearby residences surround it. As mentioned by others, there's also a Cemetery to visit via Cemetery Road. A couple signs next to the house at 1121 Crenshaw Rd, next to the trail-head, stated, as of this writing, it is for sale. There are some views betwixt the trees, which will be better in winter when the leaves don't impede them.
