Chip Ross Park has re-opened! Part of the Summit Trail remains closed due to eroded trail conditions. We anticipate re-opening this section in the next month.
On the far north side of Corvallis. Parking access is at the end of Lester Ave. Additional access is by trail from Timberhill Open Space.
Chip Ross Park features an easy-to-moderate 1.5 mile trail through lush forest and hilltop habitats of upland prairie and Oak savanna. The park offers beautiful views of Corvallis, the Willamette Valley, the Coast Range and the Cascade Mountains. Hikers and runners can also access the many miles of trails in adjacent McDonald Forest from here.
Horseback riding and bicycling are permitted on seasonally designated trails. The park is a designated off-leash area for dogs and their humans to socialize and enjoy. There are picnic tables at the Lester Ave. trailhead.
