Corvallis-Philomath Multi-Modal Path Description

The Corvallis-Philomath Multi-Modal Path provides an important link between the towns of Corvallis and Philomath, connecting neighborhoods, schools and several parks along the way. The scenic trail begins on the banks of the Willamette River near downtown Corvallis and follows the Corvallis-Newport Highway (US 20/SR 34) in a southwesterly direction for most of its journey.

Start your journey in Corvallis at B Avenue and head under the highway, where you’ll soon follow Marys River through Pioneer Park. The trail then skirts the northern edge of Avery Park, one of the city's most popular recreational attractions, which features a rose garden, athletic fields, playgrounds and picnic shelters.

Shortly after passing Western View Junior High School and crossing 35th Street, the trail dives south past Ashbrook Independent School. Soon after, you'll reach two adjacent parks: Bruce Starker Arts Park and Sunset Park. The former features a community vegetable garden, pond, picnic tables and an amphitheater for special events. Across the street, Dunawi Creek and the surrounding wetland habitat are the highlights of Sunset Park.

The trail follows Country Club Drive through a residential area until it meets up again with the Corvallis-Newport Highway and heads southwest. This leg of the trail offers views of rural landscapes before reaching the eastern edge of Philomath.

Parking and Trail Access

A public parking lot is available at the intersection of B Avenue and 2nd Street in Corvallis. Parking lots can also be found in Avery Park (SW Avery Park Drive) and Bruce Starker Arts Park (SW Country Club Drive and SW 45th Street).

Corvallis-Philomath Multi-Modal Path Reviews

Very Pleasant Ride

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.

Excellent Family Ride

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.

Fun ride!

Most everybody has a smile and a nice wish for the day! Well taken care of path that’s a joy to ride.
