“Great local biking and hiking destination”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2012

plenty of big trees and trails of all difficulties, hills and creeks make this forest seem far away from Corvallis.

“Great forest just outside of town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2012

Good place to hike, bike and ride your horse. Trails improved. Appreciate the newer approach to logging --sustainable rather than clear cut.

“McDonald Forrest Mountain Biking best kept secret”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2009

Corvallis' hidden gem is OSU's McDonald Research Forrest. There are tons of gravel roads and sweet technical single-tracks to enjoy. Lots of solitude, and occasional wildlife. If you haven't been to McCulloch peak (2150 ft elev.) and you live in Corvallis, you're missing out.
