Ya-Po-Ah Terrace sits at the base of historic Skinner’s Butte and urban forest. Numerous cedar, fir and pine trees flank the north and west sides of our structure. The many deciduous trees in the Historic District offer beautiful autumn color. Numerous birds, squirrels and an occasional deer or turkey are seen on our 3.5 acres. A beautiful bald eagle pair has made their home on the Northwest side of the butte. To the west of our property the City of Eugene maintains a hill climb entrance that connects to the butte trails. To the north of our property, many joggers and bicyclists can be seen moving up the Skinner’s Butte Road. The Willamette River bike path can also be accessed via High Street which is one block east of our Pearl Street location.
