Bald Peak State Scenic Viewpoint

Near Portland, Oregon, United States

Bald Peak (1,629' elev.) is located where the worlds of high-tech and rural Oregon meet. Restaurants, shops, nightlife and a fast pace abound in nearby Hillsboro. Farms, wineries, fruit stands and a slower pace of life can be found in Newberg. Take a relaxing, scenic drive through the Chehalem hills from Hillsboro to Newberg. Along the way, take a break at Bald Peak State Park.

There's a nice grassy hillside perfect for a picnic (there's no drinking water at the park, though). Afterward, go for a short stroll through a Douglas fir woodland.

History

This land was purchased from a private owner in 1931. In 1939, Parks Superintendent Samuel Boardman and Highway officials were asked to consider the park as a prospective location for a memorial to the pioneer women of the Oregon Country, but the site was not chosen.
