I took the road up, and the trail down. I'm a little out of shape, but was able to do this entire hike without a bottle of water at around 7pm. It's an easy hike with manageable elevation gain. The views are not good. At least from this trail. Haven't found a good vista of the valley from this area, at least not yet. This hike was EASY.

This trail is a gravel road, but that doesn't detract from the experience. This trail offers a good workout with a nice view of Corvallis and the Willamette Valley on a clear day.

beautiful hike. We took the trail up, and the road back. We did not go to the furthest point due to some off leash dogs running around, which would have been a hindrance for our on leash alpha Aussie, but it was a lovely hike, none the less.

My husband and 4 year old and I had fun walking this trail! It was our little ones first trail and we ended up doing both the old and new growth trails. Loved the bridges and lush growth along the way. Will do this again with our extended family!

This is my favorite Peavy Arboretum hike. Last went up this two months ago but wanted to review it as I have gone up this several times in the last year. It is just long enough to be some what challenging but short enough to be convenient. Great hiking choice during winter and fall as it never seems to be raining as much as it does in the valley. The lake is a nice view spot and the views to the west near the top is good but the single track wilderness trails are the best part. I highly recommend you follow the Powder House trail instead of the logging roads to keep it scenic and woodsy.

This is one of my more favorite hikes in Corvallis. It is a little bit longer than others but the feeling of remoteness when you get near the top is awesome. The final hike to the top on a steep single track is very memorable. And like most of the Corvallis hikes, you can do this during winter and fall as it always seem like there's less rain than in the Willamette valley.

Nice trail. I end up on this when I go to McDonald a lot. a good walk in the woods.

Very easy hike and lovely. The little lake is fun for the dogs and is quite pretty. By taking some of the side trails one can add some difficulty and or distance.

Very nice and easy walk.

Nice views once you're at the top!

great trail for a sunny day. if you take the extendo trail to the 600 road you add a couple more miles to the loop and stay off the fire roads for a portion of the hike. the peak is also accessible from the soap creek parking lot.

Beautiful area.

Great trail to warm up on for the day. I usually head to the top of dimple hill after I finish this trail. To get a good sustained workout.

Did this hike a couple of weeks ago. It is a nice afternoon activity. It was moderately busy. Dogs are allowed off leash. My fur baby loves the water!

Long gradual descent on gravel road before trail takes off into trees. It’s worth the trek, however, to see the biggest living trees I have ever seen! Wildflowers such as trillium, bleeding heart and yellow violets are in bloom now. Pretty much had the trail to ourselves at 5:30 pm Tuesday. Uphill on the way back.

nice easy hike with beautiful forest views. dog friendly too!

Great fire road hike. Did one off shoot trail to get a little muddy. Good steady incline!

Nice easy trail. beautiful scenery. my 7 year old loved this section of trai.

Great trail to make a nice workout. but I am also way outta shape

Easy and nice; not too muddy.

Challenging at times, listened to owl talk to me and enjoyed the snowy view. I took a wrong turn and feel signage could be better. I will go again later Spring as too much snow closer to top. Lots of creek access for my lab so she was happy. 4 star because lack of signs.

Great views and a fun, challenging hike. Took me about 2:40 minutes to finish, I would have been quicker if it wasn’t for the 6” of snow on most of it! Crazy end of March weather.

Well maintained trail, some dog poop, very little trash. Beautiful forest.

I really enjoyed this hike but it’s not the most scenic.

Perfect length hike for walking my dog highly recommend!!! A little muddy this time of year though

great trail, well maintained. I'm glad I didn't bring my 2 young children as it would have been too hard for them. Definently not stroller/toddler friendly.

nice afternoon stroll. Not too challenging since Im old and outta shape and my 7 year old does this with me

nice afternoon stroll. I usually add the 36 loop trail in also to make it a longer hike
