This little known park offered an excellent view of the mountains to the north. There were a few trails, but rather limited hiking. We encountered only a couple of other visitors during our mid-week mid-summer visit. A wonderful, quiet find!

Tough to beat and a great short cut to and from Gaston Oregon to the rest of the world. Not well identified but if you start climbing you are on the right road. Just a little bit of a parking area and quite a view.

This place is such a beautiful viewpoint. Hard to capture it with a camera. I take all my friends there, to see it. Dress up cause the temperature is way lower up there, at that high elevation.

For a somewhat clear and sunny Fall day with leaves changing colors, this place was not very busy...when we got there 3 other vehicles were parked, one arrived before we left. Except for some broken glass in the parking lot, it appeared to be well kept and clean. Nice views. Probably could have gotten better views had we walked down... More

Steep, scenic winding drive with pretty views about 15 minutes from Newberg. Small park with dark, wooded area on one side as you enter and an open field / view area by parking lot on the other. A few picnic tables in the trees with no view. Small bathroom building - very basic porta-potty / no sink. No view from... More

This is a very small park, you can see all of it in about 20 min. The views however are very good and worth taking a look at. It just wont take very long. Nice winding drive to the park though.

This is a small but beautiful park that overlooks the valley, offering a view of the beautiful farming country. In and around the picnic area sentinel evergreens stand majestic. This park offers a lovely setting for a picnic or a photo shoot, whether in sunshine or in fog.

This is not a large park, so don't come expecting to hike miles and miles. It does however offer great views of the surrounding country side and a nice cool place (under the trees) to enjoy a picnic lunch.

Bald Peak is a GREAT place to go in order to look at the surrounding mountains of the region. If you get there at just the right time, some of the mountains are far enough away that they appear to just be floating in the sky with the clouds. It's a very cool sight to behold!

A short drive from Newberg (where surprisingly the Fred Meyer had a nice deli section) is the perfect spot to have a picnic with a view. There are only a few tables but even from a parked car, the view is good There are a few short little trails that let you walk further into the wooded area to take... More
