best little hike in town

McDonald forest was closed today so we looped around Chip Ross Park several times to get 4 miles in.

A great hike for the whole family. This is becoming our "go-to" hike spot since it's something my 5-year-old daughter can do with us easily enough! Great views along the way and a smooth hike.

this is my first real use of AllTrails. so far it's a 5 star app. I used it on this hike which I know. Love this app. the map was spot on. my goal is to learn all it can do.

Love this trail.

This trails leads to one of the best views in Corvallis!

I would recommend this trail if you are looking for a peaceful, light, and easy hike. You will be surrounded by beautiful thin trees, making the trail pretty shady! Whether you’re by yourself or with a comrade, this trail is nice for a calming afternoon hike. Enjoy nature in its natural habitat!

Scout trail was nice, but only about a quarter of this hike. Mostly gravel logging roads. Some nice views!

Nice hike with a great view of Mary’s Peak

Beautiful views; short hike that gives helps to recharge and destress. Because of the hills, you will also get a good workout.

This is a very easy and beautiful hike. Lots of wildflowers! It's also very dog friendly. I sometimes connect it to the section 36 loop for a longer and more moderate level hike.

We ended up biking this trail following these directions (counter-clockwise). We found ourselves walking the bikes up...up...up and up some more. When we FINALLY got the to the top, exhausted, we found ourselves relieved to find the the rest was down hill. While we hiked up a single-track like trail, we rode down a gravel service road type trail. The lake on the way down was really cool (cronemiller) and the people there were friendly. While there was limited official parking, we found them at there was plenty of space to park on the side of highway just outside the start point. Awesome trail.

This was a great hike, only saw one person at the start, and had lots of elevation. I would be careful of the poison oak in spots and the trail system requires AllTrails app or map as It would be easy to get turned around. Happy Trails

nice easy hike to stretch the legs. I usually do this hike the day before I have a longer and harder trail to do. Can be super muddy when Its wet out.

Very nice maintained trail. great for hiking with stroller.

Quite nice! A bit more gravel road walking than I like, but still some nice trails through forest and meadows. Beautiful river views, but watch for poison oak!

I keep finding nice hikes in the Corvallis area! Once you leave the paved path, a great trail system on the hill. It was dry today, but it would be slick when wet.

Very flat with not much elevation gain. Good trail for a quick evening jaunt

The trail is gravel on the sections near the parking lot, but dirt the rest of the way. Some steep uphills, but this is not a hard trail. Beautiful views from the top, but some sections with no shade, so plan accordingly.

Nice hiking with slight elevation at first. saw a number of people hiking and biking.

Variety of adjacent trails near this one. I saw bikers and joggers. the only downside is limited parking.

It was definitely more muddy than I like. The trail is well-marked but the loop we did was 3.9 miles; see recording for details. The section from the loop back to the car was signed as no entry including foot traffic, which seemed strange as it is the road. We walked it anyway as it wasn’t clear there was another way without adding a lot more distance. Overall a nice, if a bit muddy, hike. Trilliums are mostly gone and not many wildflowers blooming yet. Few birds for some reason today.

Thus was a great moderate trail, very well kept area. We were able to take our dogs and let them off leash occasionally, one is young and not sure how she acts with other people and dogs. The climb in elevation raised our heart levels, as we hadn’t hiked in a while. The weather was mild and we enjoyed the lake view too.

beautiful! not too hard

Too many dog lovers contaminating this family friendly site with their "loving animal's" plastic poop bags. if you going to enjoy communing with animal AND nature...then have the common decency and respect for the environment and others...clean up, pick up, and carry out your dogs SH#$! You're ruining the natural experience by your selfish and inconsiderate behavior

More fire road than trail. The short section of trail started as flat single track with a few wet mucky areas; the creek was quite full and loud. I was alone until three loud rowdy young men came down from the woods (off trail). I chose not to cross the water due to the rapid flow and turned left instead. At that point the trail ascended rather steeply into the woods. I only found one mushroom despite the moisture, tree cover, and abundant dead trees, which I don’t understand. There were a few wild weeds and flowers. The signs of research are more prevalent here than in other parts of this forest, which I don’t enjoy as much. All in all a nice short hike if you’re in the area.

The parking lot only has room for 4-5 cars which could be an issue on weekends. There were two spots today on a Tuesday early afternoon. The trail is wide and flat for the most part; easy to walk side by side. Streams and full and beautiful right now. There is a small lake at the top which is definitely worth the walk. You can also bring your lumberjack tools to practice axe-throwing or log chopping for your next event! See pics for an explanation.
