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.

Great trails! Cougar sightings recently, and my dogs always get ticks up there

Super short trail. Went on a hot day, lots of bugs, and trail was super overgrown so i went home after 15 minutes of trying to find a clear path

Great paved path near OSU! Perfect for a 2 mile run. Connects to bald hill bike path

Enjoyable trail run. The clearcuts were unfortunate though!

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.

This hike was awesome. I loved the view at the end and would definitely recommend. Plus, you are under cover for a fair amount of time in forest so it isn’t too bad on a hot day. Just make sure you bring lots of water!

Good hike with great views at the top. Well trafficked road so you don’t feel secluded but still a good hike.

I will be back to do this one again! There are many ways to reach the summit. We took the back way where the old barn is to your right. This trail is more narrow, steeper, and was inundated with flies. The larger path back down was far more open with a gradual incline and softer ground. The trails are well maintained and clearly marked. I won't lie, it was rough for a larger girlie just getting back into hiking, but the view was well worth it!

This is an EASY trail. Not even close to moderate. Mostly road hiking, clear cut areas really take you out of nature. But there are some peaceful areas. Super short, should be considered an afternoon stroll more than anything.

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!

Still a lot of logging going on. It takes away from the serenity of a nature walk.

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.

Perfect quick hike with nice views.

Best dog park ever. 33 acres where I can run and my dog can roam.

Spent Sunday hiking up Bald Hill. It's a beautiful and peaceful area. I am just working on getting back into shape and into hiking, so cresting the top of the bill was most difficult for me, but definitely not so hard that I'd never do it again. Got a great workout, and saw some beautiful scenery and wildlife.

This trail is nice for beginners-moderate hikers because there are multiple cut offs that all you to make a loop as short as about 1.1 miles to as long as 3+ miles.

We ended up going the up hill route and it was beautiful and painful. Great work out. Follow the more worn path, instead of what Alltrails suggests. It will be a more useful climb that way.

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.

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!

Baby cows too.

Bring pants for this one! There are LOTS of blackberries (native & exotic) on this trail, many are over-growing the trail. I did see some poison oak at the beginning of the trail but didn't see any on the trail itself. There couldv'e been some along the trail mixed in with the blackberries.
There is no trail head marker & no trail markers. It could be really easy to take the wrong trail as nothing is marked. The only reason we stayed on the correct trail is because I had the all trails map up on the phone app.
