South, beyond the Corvallis city limits; use is by permit only because access requires crossing neighboring, privately owned properties.
Herbert Farm and Natural Area was acquired by the City in 2002 as part of a program to acquire open space parcels around the perimeter of the City with funding from an open space bond measure, passed by Corvallis voters in 2000. The property includes farmland with native Oak groves, diverse plants, and wildlife habitat. Marys River converges with Muddy Creek on the property, offering approximately one mile of river frontage. From the property, it is possible to view Marys Peak and Dimple Hill. There are no existing trails but visits to the site can be arranged by special use permit through Corvallis Parks and Recreation.
