Explore the most popular wildlife trails in Oregon with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Parts of it were absolutely beautiful. But it was hard to tell how to stay on the trail at times- and it went through a campground part way which was strange.

awesome trail and well maintained

Loved it

a nice walk, very easy. family friendly.

Headed up early. Nice quiet trail.

Great climb, great views, and overall great experience! The climb will test your endurance and potentially your route finding skills (although the snow is quickly melting).

I did it as a sunrise climb and it was well worth it!

Awesome hike and you get to see some really cool waterfalls. Love that you can walk behind some of them. I would grab a map at the start as there are some forks in the road. Cafe is a cool place to grab a beer when you finish.

Steep start with lots of switchbacks. Getting to the top is well worth it. Hopefully the weather is kind so you can see Mt. Hood. Their is a ridgeline that you can continue to climb if you so choose. You don’t need to to get a great view. Limited parking spots near the trailhead as of now. I had to drive a mile up the rode to Find parking and walk back toward the trail on the road. Well worth the journey.

Loved it

this is my go-to trail when I need some forest time but don't have time to get out of the city. relatively quick and easy (with one steep incline section). depending on the time of year there's a nice little stream and great views.

Beautiful hike. Worth the time. Hubby even caught some fish

Beautiful! Not very muddy, and what mud was there was firm. Recommend getting here early though, parking filled up fast! Only 3 other cars in the lot when we arrived at 9am, completely full when we left at around 12:30. Bathrooms are past the trailhead, across the street.

Road is open and some snow on parts of trail. Extremely muddy in the meadow. Wildflowers are just starting to bloom.

Easy going and beautiful little lakes

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.

Great hike! Definitely worth it. Hard to find parking, but there is some street parking about 100 feet from the trailhead-- if youre lucky. There's a gate that says no trespassing, just go around it and follow it up. There's a house, but the trail starts before you get near the house. It's off to the side. Beautiful views! But my friend and I did get dive bombed by a huge hawk, so be careful.

Love it and the view is amazing! I made the mistake of going without having eaten (hypoglycemic) and got lightheaded and a bit sick with the elevation increase. It's not an easy trail but it is not at all impossible. Beautiful!

Because of a late start, we went in and out Burnt Lake Trail. Steady uphill climb the entire way, but nicely shaded with some groves of awesome wildflowers and butterflies.

There are a considerable number of campsites, I think we scored one of the best on the "island" of the lake because it's shaded and has easy access to the lake right off the campsite.

Be prepared to spend 45 min to an hour on the CRAZY bumpy road in. We didn't get over 10 mph the entire drive. Also, don't follow the directions on this app to the trailhead, you'll end up dead ending in an entirely wrong trailhead.

Flies were really bad, but they left in the evening.

Awesome hike! view was phenomenal! I think I'd prefer to do it with snow on the ground. It was a very toughugh hike with no snow. View is great the whole way up. Really hot once passed the tree line. Be sure to have your snacks, 3-5 liters of water, trekking poles, and sunscreen. Can get windy.

good for spotting wildflower's

Beautiful and easy. Love it.

The waterfall itself is magnificent, and the bridge adds a unique vantage point and looks pretty cool in photos too. I gave it 3 stars because unless you come super early or super late, you’re going to be with hundreds of other people. If you can manage to come when there’s little to no crowds, it’s easily a 5 star waterfall.

loved this hike!! First time on this trail brought my 5 year old and 2 year old. It was nice to be able to put my 2 year old down for majority of the hike. They only big issue I ran in to was where the map states where the trail head is. spent half an hour walking around with my kids before giving up and just going to mill creek. luckily Mill creek has a giant map that showed us where it was at. So if you go there it's about a mile after the bridge heading into town on Mill Creek Rd. Not at the bridge where this map has it marked.

We started at the fish hatchery and walked towards the trailhead and back again. Total of 5 miles. It was amazing!

We started at Hat Rock. It's a straight, wide gravel path. Good for jogging, horses, walking. Really nice views of the river. Also there's no shade and it can get very hot, so bring water.
