Hikes starting here

Driving Directions

Take Exit 228 off of I-5 for Highway 34, Lebanon and Corvallis. Turn right after the exit for the community college, Corvallis and O.S.U.

Drive 9.7 miles to a traffic light and keep straight for Corvallis City Center.

Cross the Willamette River and keep driving straight on Harrison Boulevard for 1.2 miles to the junction with NW Kings Boulevard.

Keep straight here for another 1.9 miles to the rural junction with Walnut and 53rd.

Keep straight as Harrison becomes NW Oak Creek Drive. In 1.9 miles, Oak Creek Drive peels off to the right, but keep straight on NW Cardwell Hill Road.

In 0.7 miles, the road becomes gravel (and the Panorama Drive Trailhead for Fitton Green is up Chinook Drive to the left).

Drive uphill on the gravel for 0.3 miles to the parking area for Cardwell Hill.
