I am not good at following maps so if you aren't either the trails start behind you if you're looking at the boards (in front of the parking spaces) that has the maps. This was an enjoyable place for easy to moderate hikes. I went on a Monday afternoon and only a few cars were there. There is a port-o-potty... More

Lots of hiking trails with varying degrees of steepness. Some portions of the trails are deep in the trees, other out in the open. If you go during summer, take water and wear a broadbrimmed hat as there are several areas that are exposed to sun.

Peavy Arboretum is always a great place to hike any time of year. The trails are well maintained and there are many different routes of varying lengths to choose from. Have an idea of where you want to go though because I'd gotten "lost" up there a couple times as the trails wind in and out of each other! Very... More

Great trails for all families with dogs or without. Many trails to choose from...long up hill trails, or short ones that over look a small pond.

We absolutely treasure this place because it's beautiful, has great hikes, and has nice ponds with fish and newts. The arboretum has long-running studies of plants and trees and the public can benefit and find peace here. Lots to discover, never the same experience.

The 36 Loop connected to the Powder House Trail is over 5 miles and beautiful. Different environments along the trails. Lovely flowers and green in spring.

The Park is beautiful and has a wide variety of many different trees and especially flowers (in the spring). There are sever degrees of difficulty, just remember you must go up to come down. Cronemiller Lake is a nice focus from whence one can go up to the Cap House and beyond. There's been a lot of logging due to... More

Peavy Arboretum has many trails, many loops combining logging roads with trails. Calloway Creek is a very nice 3 mile or so, little elevation... Beautiful wild flowers, forests etc. Or take the 500 Gate up to Crone Miller Lake and wind your way back down to your car. A more challenging hike is following the 36 Loop. More elevation, but...

Lots of dense foliage,and McDonald Forest (managed by OSU) is amazing. Kids love the little creeks and pathways and bridges. Feels like you are in the middle of nowhere, but are within just a few miles of lovely Corvallis, Oregon. A really good way to let children see outdoor life in a safe environment.
