Parking for this trail is convenient and free at the public lot on B and 2nd St. by the skate park. The trail is all paved, well traveled, mostly flat, and only has a few minor hills. You do have to cross some streets, but the trail is designated, cared for, and safe. There was a small homeless camp in the first field we passed, but no one bothered us. The park is pretty and there was even a beaver running around munching on grass, not bothered in the least by all the passers-by stopping to photograph it. The trail also goes through some pretty residential areas. The only bumpy part was near the park, where some of the roots of the bigger trees are buckling the asphalt. It was hot, but everyone was friendly (walkers, joggers, and cyclists alike), and everyone was courteous with the space. We will definitely take this ride again.
There is a slight downhill slope on the way towards campus so be aware if you're a newbie rollerskater.
We took our seven-year-old son and nine-year-old daughter on this trail recently. There are several places where you have to cross roads, but our kids are comfortable with this type of riding, so it felt safe. It's really nice that you can stop at parks along the way for a break. We had a great time.
Easy trail with good views
Anytime I come across a couple of goats going for a walk, I just know I’m on the right trail! So many friendly people and some serious athleticism going on there, too. The path might be short but has some inclines that seem to produce a bit of perspiration. I loved the trail and will be back again. Hopefully see those sweet goats again!
Most everybody has a smile and a nice wish for the day! Well taken care of path that’s a joy to ride.
I'd give this short hike a 5, but it was poorly marked. That being said - I highly doubt you'll get lost. A real jewel, just outside the city of Corvallis. You can stay on the paved trail out in the meadows, or take a somewhat steep side trail through the gorgeous oaks and pines. and get a quick 20 minute cardio fix. There are flowers in the open fields and in the summer, abundant blackberries along the trail. You'll emerge from the thick woods at the top of hill, which is truly bald - e.g., a few beautiful oaks, and just lovely grass and fields of Queen Anne's Lace. It's a must to take a break on the well maintained bench at the top that looks over an incredible hilly view that's reminiscent of the Scottish moors.
I biked here from Benton County Fairground via downtown Corvallis. The path meandered through baseball fields, soccer fields, a kids playground, the wastewater treatment plant, and then by a very cool neighborhood. Coming back, I took some dirt routes and found a great place to hang out by the river. I suspect there are lots of places like that to discover. This path veers off in a lot of different directions. You could spend all day here exploring.
this walk is awesome and a great view but it is a Wildlife Refuge so you would not take dogs on walks or runs here. highly recommend.
It wasn't until I got back from running this nice little trail that I saw the sign "no pets, no bikes, and no jogging" plus it isn't really much of a loop. I was hoping to run around it a couple times but saw the sign and stopped after 1 time through. Otherwise it's very well kept and beautiful scenery.
Not a pet friendly trail so if you are planning on taking your pet hiking with you do not go to this trail.
