Situated in the heart of the Willamette Valley and nestled against the rolling hills of the Coast Range, Corvallis, Oregon is an outdoor enthusiasts paradise, renowned for its abundance of parks and natural areas, easily accessed within a few minutes from downtown. With earlier guides to area trails long out of print, recreationists will cheer the publication of this informative, well-organized guide, which introduces nearly sixty trails, all either in Corvallis or within an hour's drive, and many suited for casual hikers and families with children. The book's first section focuses on close-in recreational opportunities, including walks and short hikes in Corvallis city parks and McDonald Forest. Most are easily accessible by foot, bicycle, or public transportation. The second section describes trails that are outside of Corvallis but still within easy reach, including Marys Peak, four National Wildlife Refuges, two waterfall walks, and nearby Coast Range outings. The detailed trail descriptions include directions, maps, the length and difficulty of each trail, and a wealth of information on the plants, wildlife, and natural attractions to be found. Also included are accounts of area history and local conservation efforts. Walkers, hikers, runners, mountain bikers, equestrians, and outdoor enthusiasts of all kinds will find this comprehensive guidebook an essential companion as they explore the miles of well-known--and not so well-known--trails in Corvallis and environs.
