McDonald Forest

McDonald Forest is a research forest for Oregon State University and a popular recreation site for local residents and students.  This beautiful mid-Willamette Valley location offers horseback riding on forest roads and trails, some of which are open year round.

McDonald Forest

The trails and gravel roads in McDonald Forest explore the hills near Corvallis, on the western edge of the Willamette Valley.  The routes are shared with mountain bikes, hikers, and runners, and get heavy usage, especially when school is in session.  The best trailhead for equestrian access is located on Sulphur Springs Road.

McDonald Forest

While some trails in the Forest are open only April 15 through October 31, equestrians can ride a delightful year-round 10-mile “lollipop” loop by linking Dan’s Trail, Horse Trail, and several gravel roads.
