McDonald Forest: Calloway Creek to Cap House Loop Professional Review and Guide
"Main entrance to McDonald Forest is 6 miles north of Corvallis, off of U.S. Highway 99W. Tread: the route is a hardpacked dirt singletrack for 3.9 miles and gravel road for 4.5 miles. Hazards: The trail connecting roads 562 and 543 is very steep. Anticipate other recreationists, including horses. Announce your presence well in advance of overtaking other users and be prepared to yield the right of way."
--Mark Wigg, Mountain Biking Oregon (Falcon Guides).
Excellent beginners trail. Very well groomed. Nice rolling hills with a few steep climbs and descents. Beautiful ride for all levels of riders. Beware of foot traffic.
This is a beautiful well-maintained forest trail. It''s pretty easy, but you do have to watch out for the hikers. I was surprised at how many I saw so late in the fall. Parts of this trail were closed in 2002 for loggging but hopefully will reopen next year so I can do the whole thing.
