This is a fun trail to do after you get out of work if you live in Corvallis as it can be done in about an hour if you are in good shape. You will also have the option if you have more time and energy to continue on Dan's trail to the top of Dimple Hill.

The parking at the trail head is very poor, please drive carefully in the very loose gravel (I drive a 4X4 and still had issues). As it starts, the views are not great, not is the area all that scenic, but give it some time. Once the trail enters the McDonald Forest, it gets greener and picturesque. The trail itself is wide and well worn, and it easily handles multiple uses (hiking, biking, jogging, horse riding). The final view at the top of Dimple Hill is a majestic scene of the northern areas of Corvallis. I plan on returning to this trail again.
