Corvallis, OR

Bald Hill Natural Area


Due west of Corvallis, this 285-acre nature park is popular among hikers, dog walkers, and cyclists. Runners will be met with a network of more than 5 miles of trails, with great views across the Corvallis Valley. There’s also a paved multi-use path that runs for 1.3 miles between the Reservoir Ave. & Oak Creek trailheads, which can be combined with the Midge Cramer Multi-Use Path at SW 53rd & Campus Way.

The multi-use paths are fairly flat and can be combined for a ~4 mile run. Or, you can combine with the hillier gravel trails, which are wide with good footing, as they switchback their way around both sides of Bald Hill. Combination of woods and open views. Look out for blackberries in season!

Add-On: OSU campus, just west, using the Midge Cramer Multi-Use Path to connect with Campus Way.
