I like the variety this park offers. Lots of fir, cedar, oak, ash and a few large Ponderosa pines. Ponds and creeks with wildlife. The parking lot was full but the trails didn't feel crowded.

easy enough. wanted to test this one out a few months after back surgery and it was easy to get through it.
enjoyed the scenery.

i gave it a 3 but i think it should be more of a 3.5. For being so close in the city it is really nice. it is pretty busy on a September Saturday (not unexpected) I had to park a quarter mile from the trailhead. As there is space for only about 25cars in the lower area where you can park. The lower area is pretty through Mccleary park. This area follows a stream and had nice water features. There was however plenty of trash and it really bothered my daughter. Also as there were plenty of dogs someone couldnt be bothered to bring their crap out. I agree with the assements about the first 1.5 miles up being easy and the next 1mile being moderate.

Great views and nice trails only did the little loop will be back again soon. Great for 3 year old and a stroller

Good for a quick walk during week too crowded and structured if you’re looking for real nature. narrow paths

Beautiful views. Clearly blazed or marked. Enjoy Redwood Deck. Hills are moderate.

A fun, easy hike. Went here for a first date with my boyfriend

Go all the way thru at the top and enjoy a beer at skyline tavern. There is a great outdoor area with horseshoes and dog friendly. Generally somewhat steep, but manageable for most, and a great reward at the top! Highly recommend.

Very cool. Nearby to where I live so it’s refreshing to get into the trees/nature.

good trail for family, stroller friendly. not to steep,and not too long

Great trail, the map can be a bit confusing at times, but it the trails are all maintained, and the views are fantastic.

Lots of road noise.

GPS came in at 4.5 miles, took us about 1.5 hours to complete.

Be aware, parking can fill up by 10am on a weekend and there are lots of trail runners out here.

Mom and I enjoyed exploring here. I think we walked down every trail, even the obscure, overgrown ones. Make sure to do the trail on the far west that continues down to the creek. There is a cool little ring of rocks where you can take a dip or soak your feet.

We came here to mountain bike because this app has mountain biking as an activity here, but there is NO MOUNTAIN BIKING here. Someone even made sure we saw the rule sign. He was very concerned we did not ride bikes there. Other than that it looks like a great place to go for a walk.

this is my go-to trail when I need some forest time but don't have time to get out of the city. relatively quick and easy (with one steep incline section). depending on the time of year there's a nice little stream and great views.

Kicked my a** lol

Well maintained trail in the heart of PDX. I prefer early as the trail is open at 5 AM. Nice and quiet then.

Nice moderate hike. A good hill climb in the middle but mostly even through the rest. No views to speak of but you are deep in the woods. Very nice escape!

Very hilly and nice views

Parts of it are closed, but it looks like it would be a nice, very short trail

Great hike in the city.

Love this trail, perfect hiking place for a hot day.

Enjoyed this hike. Peaceful and beautiful

Nicely maintained trail. Beautiful view at the top.

I took my walking group here on a very hot day, and had a delightful, easy, shady 3.8 mile walk. wish there were more trails like it!

Really great for a city trail. Good for trail running.

Fun great little place for a family stroll or a nice run. Nicely shaded too so it stays cool throughout most of the trails..
We started out early so it wasn't too many people yet. Parking lot was full by the time we were done after 9am on a Saturday.
