  • One of my favorite places to hike in the Corvallis area! Many trails are closed during the wintering season to protect wildlife, but April through October you can explore and see all kinds of wildlife and beautiful views! The terrain is pretty flat and you can walk from one end of the refugee to the other if you want to. The signage on the southern side is not very good, so I'd suggest familiarizing yourself with the trails before coming. The northern end is very well signed and has most of the popular trails.
  • Really pretty place to visit. The driving path is long and takes you through many different areas to view and photograph if you wish. There is an old house called the Fiechter House you can view the outside of. I don't remember anything about the history of it unfortunately. The wildlife is diverse. If you are there to take photos I do recommend you bring a long lens. Plenty of places to pull over and view the wildlife. There are restrooms along the one way gravel road. At the end of the trail there is a gift shop with more restrooms and knowledgeable people to answer questions you may have.
