Oregon: home to all things hiking, biking and outdoor related. Corvallis is a place where you can do them all.
Multi-use trails are found throughout both the city center and surrounding natural areas of Corvallis. Over a hundred miles of trails can be used to walk or bike through the lush hills of the area. The Willamette Valley stretches for miles with expansive views available at multiple sites. Hikers won’t be able to help but notice the wildlife that calls the area home. Whether you catch the rare Fender’s Blue Butterflies at William L. Finley National Wildlife Refuge or dam-building beavers at Sunset Natural Area, there is something (or someone!) new to see each time.
As one of America’s most bicycle friendly towns, cyclists in Corvallis have the pick of safe on-road bike lanes as well as most rugged off-road trails. Challenge yourself with a steep climb up to Mary’s Peak, or cruise the hills to the south.
A jet charter airport in Corvallis takes you to Oregon wine country. Exceptional, family-owned wineries dot the Willamette Valley. Tasting rooms offer unparalleled views of the wineries’ fields with plump grapes still on the vines.
Oregon State University brings 25,000 students to the area annually. With students from over 80 counties, OSU has a diverse student body that helps to form its community. The 420-acre campus is one of the few universities on the National Register of Historic Places.
Downtown Corvallis is easily walkable. Find a new favorite boutique or tasting room, and check out the downtown murals as you wander.
