“Classic College Forest Trail; this features a good climb and a fun descent.
— Ty Atwater
Keep an eye out for other users as mountain bikers like to bomb this trail.
Once you've made it to the top soak in the view and the stares of the mere mortals who ask if you really just 'ran up that?!'.
From the 4-way junction with Jackson Creek Rd. Middle Dan's
and the Dan's Horse Trail Connector, start up the hill. Make sure to pace yourself as the trail gains ~800 feet in elevation over a little more than a mile and a half. Just before the top make sure not to take the spur trail on the right (leads to the 650 Rd. and Patterson Rd.) as you don't want to miss the view from the top.
Flora & Fauna
Douglas fir, poison oak and cougars (Corvallis is full of them)...
