From Corvallis Parks and Recreation
Bald Hill Natural Area is a favorite of Corvallis residents. This park offers a moderately level, 1.5 mile multi-modal path along the base of the hill as well as some dirt hiking and bicycling paths if you choose to utilize them. The trails pass through varied habitats of upland prairie, oak savanah, oak woodlands, riparian areas and wetlands. Wildflowers are plentiful in the spring.
A restored barn offers guests shade and shelter at the base of the hill. Bald Hill barn is a nice shaded spot for park users. This barn may be reserved for parties and events by completing a Special Use Permit form.A few memorial benches allow guests the opportunity to rest and enjoy the beautiful vistas of nearby farms and the hills beyond. An area near the barn is designated as an off-leash dog area.
The multi-modal path leading into the natural area may be accessed from 3 locations: a path next to the Benton County Fairgrounds, behind the gate off of Oak Creek Rd, and at an entrance off of Reservoir Rd. There is a parking lot near the Oak Creek Rd. entrance.
