Good trail for a casual hike or trail running. Could easily make a longer hike out of it if you do the full loop and explore branch trails.

Great place for hiking or running.

Simple, non-technical ride. Moderately hilly, but not punishing. At the ends of the trail, foot, dog, and other biker traffic gets heavier. I like this trail for training runs and for tune-up rides. Sadly, parking at the the east end is neighborhood and usually packed. Parking at the west end is usually better although there is less space. I do recommend this trail for easy hikes, runs, and rides, just don't expect anything spectacular. It's good for dates, families, and pets.

This was a fun and easy journey down this trail, perfect for the fall time. There wasn't any traffic on the way down and there maybe a group or two on my way up. The view was definitely worth it once you get down to the viewing platform and great exercise going back to the beginning of the trailhead. I would recommend this if you live or headed to St. John's; especially with all the colors changing in the forest.

My husband and I traveled here from San Diego. We love trail running but are used to dry climate. This was the most beautiful run I've ever done. Brutal and unforgiving though with lots of hills. All worth it though because the scenery is amazing. Definitely recommend for a hike or a daring run.

Went for a run this morning. Trail is well marked and beautiful. Very steep for running though. Feels remote enough even though you cross over three roads. Coming back down you can take an alternative trail to make last part a loop. You'll see sign saying .06 to parking lot. Marquam shelter.

Great urban hike with excellent views at the summit. You do cross a few roads, but most of the hike is secluded, climbing through thick forest around deep gorges in the hillside.

Heavily trafficked trail with a trailhead at the Pittock Mansion parking lot. Runs along be highway. Lots of runners. Easily accessed from downtown. Decent inclines and descents.

Have had great photo taking times at the end of the trail at sunset.

Another nice city park, I frequent it for walking the dogs.

Kind of a lame "walk". No signage, had no idea where to go. Took a path that led to the sewage and then up to the main road. Had no idea where to go, there were like 5 different paths. It's nice for a morning walk if you live in the area, otherwise would not recommend.

This hike was quick and easy, but definitely a workout from start to finish. It was pretty peaceful and there was hardly anyone on the trail; which was nice. If you are looking for a short hike near St. John's, I would recommend this one, but expect to be a little sore afterwards if you haven't hiked in awhile.

Amazing how your in the city but you feel so far away. Trails are pretty easy.

Great trail for the family.

Great hike especially with kids.

Little crowded on weekends, but an awesome hike for a little get away.
