With miles of unpaved trails in the wooded hills north of Corvallis, this park is a great place for a run or hike.

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.
