Recreation

The vision of the OSU Research Forests Recreation and Engagement Program is to offer a variety of enjoyable opportunities for a diverse set of forest visitors to participate in close-to-home recreation and learning activities in a forested environment; a place where people feel comfortable engaging in outdoor activities as individuals or with their neighbors and friends, and come away learning something new about forests.  We welcome picnickers, hikers, trail runners, mountain bikers, equestrians, dog walkers, hunters, nature enthusiasts, and you to explore our almost 30 miles of trails and over 110 miles of roads.  Trailhead parking gets full on busy afternoons and weekends, so check out alternative transportation options!
