Benton County Parks works with private landowners, Corvallis Parks and Recreation, the City of Philomath, Siuslaw National Forest, the Greenbelt Land Trust, and others to offer a trail system that provides health and recreation benefits for the citizenry. For detailed information, download the Trails System Plan under Downloads below.
For a county-wide view, see the trails plan map, which is also shown in more detail in Appendix B: Maps of Benton County Natural Area & Parks with Trails.
The Bald Hill Trail System is a good example of how partnerships can create an excellent trail program. The Benton County Fairgrounds provides access to the paved multi-use path that crosses a donated private easement and connects to Bald Hill City Park. There are over 8 miles of trails located in the Bald Hill Trail System. Benton County Natural Areas and Parks will continue its efforts to form partnerships to enlarge the County's trail program, as long as citizens continue to express their support for trails.
We are working on connecting Jackson-Frazier trails with other trails in the area.
In Beazell Memorial Forest, we are proposing several new trails.
