Summary: From the gate follow the 600 road to the "Y" with the 6020 and take a left onto the 6020 road. Follow until it ends and the Uproute trail begins where you'll go through five tight switch backs to the top of the trail at the junction of Extendo (on your right) and the 680 road (straight ahead) and Endo (unofficial trail) on your left. Now you start back downhill on the Extendo Trail which is a maintained trail that winds through the forest and back down to the 6020 road. This trail is open year round to hikers and only April 15 to October 31 (depending on the rains) for bikers and horses. But it can be muddy in spots in the winter. Follow the 6020 back to the 600 road and follow it back down to the gate and the parking long. This hike can be done in either direction, I like to go clockwise, up the road and down the trail.
Trailhead: From I-5, take Corvallis exit and follow to Corvallis. As you come over the bridge, stay straight on Harrision Blvd and follow clear through town. As Harrison crosses 53rd street it becomes Oak Creek Road. Follow Oak Creek Road until it ends (stay left at "Y" with Caldwell Hill Road). Road ends at a small parking lot at the Oak Creek orange gate. This is the trailhead. (Lat:44.6025 Lon:-123.3317)
