Both the Arboretum and the State Forest are managed by the Oregon State University College of Forestry. The extensive collection of trees and shrubs in the arboretum’s park-like setting make for an interesting birding stop, especially in spring when migrant Townsend?s Warbler and nesting Hermit and Black-throated Gray Warblers can all be heard singing in the treetops, while Wilson’s and MacGillivray’s Warblers forage in the understory. The Woodland Trail (0.4 mi, unpaved with gentle grades) has Winter Wren and Hairy Woodpecker year-round. The Section 36 Loop Trail (2.8 mi, 800 ft elevation gain) is a more challenging hike (or mountain bike route). Ruffed and Sooty Grouse, Gray Jay, and Red Crossbill are possibilities on this loop.
From Hwy 99W MP 76.3, S of Adair Village, turn W on Arboretum Rd. Go 0.7 mi and turn R into signed entrance for Peavy Arboretum. GPS 44 39.312 N, 123 13.775 W. From there bear R to gravel parking lot above Peavy Lodge to access Woodland Trail, or bear L and follow signs for Forestry Club Cabin to access longer trails.
