Road Trip: Springfield

Springfield is often mentioned in the same breath as Eugene, the two cities forming the state’s second-largest metro area.

Springfield

Settled in the south Willamette Valley, Springfield is the perfect hub for a day full of adventures.

We like to think our Springfield is the famed Springfield of The Simpsons. Meet Bart, Lisa, Marge and (d’oh!) Homer at the Springfield Museum. Go back in time at Dorris Ranch, a 250-acre farm that’s more than 100 years old, making it the state’s oldest working filbert farm. Fill up on fresh fruits and veggies at the year-round farmers’ market. Or leave to the experts and fill up at a tasty eatery.

What are some easy, dog-friendly trail hikes?

Mt. Pisgah in Eugene is a great place to take dogs and go hiking. For an easier hike, look for the arboretum trails. If the weather is right there are some creeks in the parking area that a dog could play in. Tryon Creek Trail near Portland is dog-friendly and just friendly, in general. Wahclella…
