A hidden little park in North Corvallis, Witham Hill Natural Area is full of old forest and abandoned orchards. The trails of Witham Hill Natural Area may be short, but they're a nice chance to get out in the woods. Within walking distance of several neighborhoods and next to a large apartment complex, you would expect to see lots of people out here - and you'd be surprised. Many times, you'll have this mile loop all to yourself.

Fairly easy hike close to home and fairly short. Trail not well marked so we got lost and found ourselves paralleling Walnut Blvd before backtracking and finding the right path. A bit noisy with road noise and power equipment in use by the apartment buildings adjacent to the trail.

Way too muddy today. I guess that’s what you should expect when it’s been raining all week including earlier today. Slipping and sliding the whole way. I think it will be a nice hike ewith a dry “er” trail. There were some pretty big tracks in the mud, which were probably from a black bear or a very big dog or someone with a black bear footprint maker walking stick, whatever that’s called. My dog is “supposedly“ a malamute and German shepherd mix, more on the German Shepherd size and those prints were way bigger than his. At first I thought mountain lion but after a little research, visible claws is unlikely to represent a cat.

Live right near here in one of the complexes. Beautiful forested area to hike through. Don't go in the woods at night...bums like to make camp in there. Very safe during the day time.

Was looking for an easy trail for my husband who hates hiking and for our pug who's not very active. This was a perfect and short introductory hike for them. I plan on going back for a short jog.

11/26/16 wet slippery trail covered in leaves. Added a slight challenge, no problems. Took the longest upper loop trail from parking lot. No one around, clean. The tree fort is gone, looked like it was burned out and the tree is dead.
