Summit is a small unincorporated community northwest of Blodgett on Hwy 180. The 21 mile from downtown Corvallis takes about 30 minutes (see route).
The name of the town likely refers to its being the high point on the Portland and Western Railroad that goes between Albany and Toledo. The community has a Grange Hall and a Community Center. There are no commercial businesses. Since the late 1970s, the community has held the Summit Summer Festival (in recent years, on the third Saturday in August).
