Bald Hill is located in Corvallis, on the far west side of town. The path leading into the 284 acres natural area may be accessed from 3 locations: a path next to the Benton County Fairgrounds, behind the gate off of Oak Creek Rd, and at an entrance off of Reservoir Rd.
Bald Hill Natural Area is a favorite of Corvallis residents. This park offers both a moderately level, 1.5 mile multi-modal path along the base of the hill and several miles of dirt and gravel foot trails that circle and climb to the summit of the hill, as well as connect to the Mulkey Creek trail and Fitton Green Natural Area. The trails pass through varied habitats of upland prairie, oak savannah, oak woodlands, riparian areas and wetlands.
I plan on hiking to the summit from the bike path, then heading to Block 15 for a late lunch, if anyone else is interested.
