Overview

Flowery field

This little known summit on the north end of Corvallis, Oregon has a nice nature park. This truly is one of the lighter summits in the region and it only requires about an hour to complete. The views are pretty much gone from this hill except for a minor outlook from a field. The true summit is actually in a forested area and though it is legal to get to, there are houses fifty yards to the north. This is a nice way to spend an hour in spring or fall and enjoy the vegetation.

Getting There

From Downtown Corvallis: Take Highway 20 for 1.8 miles and turn right onto 35th street. Head north on 35th street for 1.2 miles and make a left on Harrison Blvd. Once on Harrison Blvd make an immediate right onto NW 36th Street. Make another left onto Circle Road and take that to an obvious trailhead on your right.

This hill can be climbed any time of the year. We did it in spring and there were nice flowers once you got into the upper fields.
