Willamette River Trail Description

The Willamette River Trail is actually a collection of paved and natural-surfaced trails through Willamette Park and the Crystal Lake Sports Fields in Corvallis. As the name suggests, most of the trails follow the Willamette River, offering a boat ramp and scenic water views.

The landscape is primarily a mix of riparian forest and meadows, making this trail system ideal for wildlife viewing. A paved spine trail splits the large sports complex, where 10 soccer fields and 9 baseball diamonds are available for reservation. There is also a disc golf course farther south in Willamette Park.

Parking and Trail Access

From State Route 99W in Corvallis, turn left (east) on Crystal Lake Drive and continue approximately 0.5 mile to Fischer Lane, on your left. Turn left on Fischer Lane to where it ends at the Crystal Lake Sports Fields. There is a large parking lot for your convenience.

Willamette River Trail Reviews

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.
