Great video by Philomath High student showcases Witham Hill Natural Area

Marci Sischo | 10/12/2018 | Biking, Hiking, Nature Walks/Trails, Outdoor Recreation

Witham Hill Natural Area is a lovely little patch of urban greenspace filled with Oregon white oaks and Douglas and grand firs and boasting a loop trail just under a mile long. It makes for a peaceful, beautiful setting for a quick hike or nature walk. It's a dog-friendly space (on leash), and a nice spot for a bit wildlife watching. The path is asphalt and leads you through native and invasive wilderness, offering views of Marys Peak along the way.

You can enter Witham Hill at a small parking lot located on Circle Blvd., just a little ways west past NW Witham Hill Drive.

Caleb Shaw, a student at Philomath High School, recently made a great video for his Broadcast Media class, showcasing the Witham Hill Natural Area. He says he made the video "because I love the Witham Hill Natural Area, just all of the trees and green and being out in nature. The outdoors really pumps me up and makes me happy." Check out his video below!
