With miles of unpaved trails in the wooded hills north of Corvallis, this park is a great place for a run or hike. Take care to keep dogs on the trails as there is a potential to disturb the ground bees. Overall it is a great place to have a walk in the shade on a hot day, or really throughout the year.
Very pretty place to walk around. I enjoyed reading all the informative signs. I took some beautiful photos the very tall and beautiful trees. It was very peaceful. There was a lot more to explore up the road. I’ll definitely be back.
