Nice mellow pace, a relaxing walk!

I went on the proper Vineyard Mountain Trail (lower portion), All trails said I was going off Trail. This is a beautiful hike from the saddle. Trail starts behind bathroom and climbs up east side of ridge before connecting with spur road and continues on up from there.

As a local hike this one is one of my favorites. I do it usually once or twice a month. Easy to make it longer by adding on sections of Dave’s trail. This trail is lovely rain or shine however I wouldn’t consider it a destination trail. It’s great if you’re local but I wouldn’t travel from far away to hike it.

Definitely a new favorite. Birds and butterflies and some late spring flowers. There is lots of shade available to keep the body cool.

Nice wide trail. We took the incline up which took us a little while but you are rewarded with a view of Corvallis and a cool old abandoned cabin frame from the 1930s.

I love this hike in either direction. Perfect for a quick jaunt or casual stroll. Never too many people, but there are dogs, bikes, runners and hikers enjoying the area. Also, lots of different trails to explore from Lewisburg Saddle. Maps are available at the trail head kiosk.

Very cold day but beautiful and clear. Hardly any other people after 4pm. Half of it is trail then roads, nonetheless the views are super.

Wet windy rainy day but beautiful. Weekend parking can be issue but so what. Forgot my trekking poles would have appreciated having them on descent slick mud

Good easy going trail. We took the trail up and 500 Rd back down. We got there around 9:30 and the parking lot was full. However we only saw a handful of people hiking/running. This trail connects to others so you can make your hike longer if you want. Overall nice a great with mostly tree cover and well maintained trails.

I enjoy this trail - busy enough with hikers, mountain bikes, runners to feel safe but not so busy that it’s a deterrent. It’s a gravel road to the top, the trail down winds through gorgeous forest. As a hiker, be mindful going during the on season for mountain biking- the plants are tall enough that you could be hard to spot with much advanced notice. Definitely keep your dog on leash! On a rainy day there is very minimal overhead cover. This is a trail definitely on my repeat list.

We (wife, dog, me) walked his trail on a Saturday afternoon in August. Delightful easy walk thru managed forest. Encountered occasional other cyclists, joggers, and walkers. Trail is thru the forest and does not offer panoramic views.

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.

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.

A short leisure walk through mostly forested area. Well-maintained gravel roads with few inclines. For a longer, similar loop take the Davies Nettleton Loop which includes half of this loop as well.
