Summary: From the 200 gate, follow the road about 1/4 mile to the point that the road goes left and the trail (which is marked) goes straight. Follow this single track as it crosses a stream (very easy unless there is record rain or snow run off) and then heads up to the a gentle climb to the trailhead at the 100 road. This is your turn around point with a nice view of the valley. Follow the road back down to your car. This is a good hike for kids, because you turn around at any point.
Trailhead: From I-5 follow the signs to Corvallis, then head north on HWY 99W about 10 miles to Adair Village and take a left on Tampico Road. Follow the main road until it ends then go about another half mile on the gravel road and look for the 200 Road gate on your left. Each Dunn Forest gate has a kiosk, so as you drive down Tampico you'll pass the 400, then 300, then 200, if you go to far you'll can turn around at the 100 road (this will help you find it). Park off Tampico but don't block the gate from opening, if the gate is open, do not drive in. (Lat:44.7116 Lon:-123.3021)
