Great walking and bike paths. The views are worth the effort and this is a great family space. 5 minutes outside of the city but hours away from city stress and noise. A real gem for Corvallis.

Bald Hill is great, there are paved trails perfect for walking, running, or biking. There are beautiful views of the valley from the top, and benches along the way. And, if you go in late summer, there are tons of delicious blackberries along the trail.

This is one heckuva large, beautiful public space on prime real estate. Great to see the city set this aside for everyone’s enjoyment. Great berrying, so bring your tupperware. Had a fantastic picnic on the grass in front of the barn (facing the valley view)....More

Great paved or dirt paths. Cycling, Running, or Horses. There are paths that work for everyone. Go to the top of the hill to see an awesome view of the valley.

Beautiful place to go hiking, running, or walking. Once you’re at the top, the view of Corvallis is breathtaking. There is a nice flat area to have a picnic or just take a rest Before heading back down. This is a great place to watch...More

It's about 10 minutes from town and accessible from different trailheads. There are lots of trails, some paved, some not and plenty of single-track. You can take your dogs (on leash), mountain bike, trail run, walk slowly on fairly level ground or hike steeply up...More
