Great place to learn about the outdoors and animals with the kiddos. Rustic - there is an inside facility that I believe you can rent. We went there for a one day outdoor school.

Easy to moderate paved trail for scooting or biking or you can simply walk. There are also nice off the path trails with less human traffic. A good way to work off that capuccino and almond croissant with the affluent foks from Corvallis.

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.

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
