It's our quick getaway place when we want a nice forest walk. Love the old growth
trail and the ridge trail.

Pick up a free map from the trailheads, or buy a color map from Peak Sports or one of the book stores in Corvallis. The color map covers the Dunn forest as well as the McDonald. The free map is just the McDonald. There are many, many hikes of varying difficulty that you can take. The roads are, well, forest roads, and the trails are the best maintained trails in Oregon. The Dunn forest is a bit off towards Airlie, and a great place to go for privacy. It is more of a working forest (a few clear cuts). Some trail use is restricted in winter, but otherwise excellent horse and bike use as well. Look to the Oak Creek access, Lewisburg saddle, Peavy Arboretum or 100 gate of the Dunn for some great hiking.

I run, hike, and bike here every week. Lovely place. Plenty of oid growth and nice second growth, Great views at hill tops. Also a good place to see high quality clear-cuts and forestry, which supports the OSU College of Forestry.
