Beautiful scenery!!

3.9 Miles is the trail length according to my phone. Took me about an hour and 20 minutes to complete. Good trail but if given the choice I’d do the section 36 loop trail any day over this loop trail

As others said, quiet and pleasant.

the name of the park is actually forest dell park. Nice easy loop with lots of mature trees and big leaf maples. Great spot for birding. I’ve seen many woodpecker species,nuthatches,brown creepers, and even a Great Horned Owl.

awesome so many trails

We went on the main path and also went off left of the trail through pines onto a very small hill. Many species of birds especially Nuthatches.

Lovely hike with my 2 grown kiddos and 2 dogs. The lake was small, but beautiful and peaceful. The dogs romped around in the water for a bit. I rated this hike only 3 stars because 90% of the loop was on a gravel road. We were under tree cover the entire hike and the trees were pretty along with birds chirping!

Nice short hike!

I liked this trail. Easy walking part on gravel road and part on wide mulched pathway. Not many people around on this beautiful Sunday afternoon.

This was a great early morning hike! Definitely be sure to grab a Forest map at the parking lot as some of the markers are confusing. I ended up tacking on part of the Powder House trail to make it longer and it was a fantastic addition.

Well maintained trail. Slightly steep switchback turns closer to the summit at Dimple Hill. Very shady for most of trail. Gorgeous views of Corvallis and Philomath.

Beautiful and easy. Love it.

It's beautiful and serene.
I walked the surrounding trails afterwards.

Great loop trail. Shaded the whole way and there are a lot of other trails that branch off of it. Dogs allowed and wasn’t very crowded (5pm on weekday). Great way to escape heat In summer. Highly recommend.

Great trail and stroller friendly

Nice trail....perfect Sunday morning walk

Fun, easy hike. Had a lengthy discussion about the woods and how they reminded us of Stranger Things. My middle schoolers kept an eye out for the Demogorgon.

great hike peaceful and the lake is beautiful can't wait to go back and explore the rest of the trails

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.

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!
