Summary: Wonderful year round hike, flat paved asphalt trail that takes you through several Oregon State research fields. Midway through the hike is a historic Benton County covered bridge that was moved to this location and rebuilt by community volunteers. This is a popular lunch time walking spot that is available year round. Always a fun hike during the lambing season when the new baby lambs are being born and running around.
Trailhead: There are two ways to access this hike. The first is to park at the Oregon State Univerary Lambing Barn just off of 35th Street. The other is to park at the Benton County Fair Ground just off of 53rd Street. Trail is paved asphalt. (Lat:44.3399 Lon:-123.1806)
