Awesome hike with great forest views. Paths are well maintained. I loved that they were wide enough that we could hike side by side instead of single file.

A nice easy loop for a Sunday morning. The trilliums were in full bloom, blanketing the forest floor with white and pink flowers. We were thrilled and totally distracted by them at first. The novelty finally wore off and we continued on our journey.

I loved the deep forest feel with a variety of trees: lacey cedars, towering firs and canyons of alder groves. The trail is well-maintained and moderately busy, but there was always room to pass other hikers.

We began with Dogwood Trail, descended down, across Wildwood Trail, turned right on Lief Erickson Dr, until you come to Wild Cherry Trail, turn right up the hill, back across Wildwood Trail and back to the car.
