I haven't hiked the whole 30 miles of it but this is a great trail because there are so many other options to branch off of and cool places to see.

Great trail, I wouldn't go as far to say it's "Moderate". It wasn't a difficult hike. nice scenery and once I got up to council crest for the first time, the views were great I soaked them up for a couple of hours before I decided to hike back down.

Great trail for commuting on bike. Also good for enjoyment through walking, running, and biking.

Beautiful place to walk or run. Can get rather busy.

Started the Wildwood Trail off of SW Fischer Lane. Also hit the Redwood and Oak trail. Did not go through the whole 27 mile loop of Wildwood but all trails we hit north of the Visitor Center was very enjoyable. Our starting point of the Wildwood was intensely green and vegetated. Oak trail not so much but for a sunny day in Portland, with very limited run ins with other hikers it was an enjoyable outing. Far more of a decent walk than what I would consider a "hike".

The trail itself was ok... nothing to right home about. The view from Council Crest was beautiful, but pretty crowded!

This convenient, but heavily used, trail in the West Hills near downtown Portland leads to the iconic Council Crest Peak. On a clear day there are great views not only of the city, but also Mt. Hood, Mt. Saint Helens and Mt. Adams.

The trees are pretty up by terwilliger but under the freeway down to John’s landing. If you can’t get out of town and are desperate for a hike ok , otherwise get outta here!

This is a beautiful trail along the beautiful Oregon coast - definitely worth your time. The trail itself is narrow - not difficult but if it had been raining within the last few days the mud will make it difficult and a little risky to traverse if you don’t have good balance. Also, I’ll say that while there are markers on the trail, they are very easy to miss and with so many offshoots of the trail that lead to great viewpoints that you will want to take, I can see people getting lost easily. Pay close attention or download the offline map. Finally, while this listing states it’s great March through October I would recommend late March if March at all - while it’s beautiful in winter there is a lot of leafless trees that in certain would make the trail even more breathtaking if viewed when spring has sprung. April through October would be the best time to partake IMO.

I live in Hillsdale, so it’s pretty neat to be able to get down to the river on this trail. I also think it’s a special urban thrill to hike under I-5. Willamette Park is a nice destination, with bathrooms, water fountains, and a dog park.

This is a point to point hike along the Clackamas River that connects upstream Riverside Campground to downstream Rainbow Campground. I started and finished at Rainbow Campground trailhead. It is a good easy hike with very little elevation gain and I used it to increase my walking speed. Light snow was on the trail in some areas though not an issue. I imagine with all the spur trails to the river this is a good place for summer swims. Hiked on 02/15/18.

Great leisurely walk

my sister and I had a great time hiking here. it was a little muddy but I think it had rained the night before. overall, it was beautiful.

Nice easy trail, very narrow in some places. There are two entry points. You can start at the first one one which is about .50 mile from the Ripplebrook guard station, which is also a general store that sells passes to Bagby Hot Springs if you wanna full day. There is a sign indicating the trail, but this point drops you off in the middle of the trail and you can walk up and down both directions. If you want to start at the beginning of the trail, head further down to Riverside camp ground for an easy 3.7 mile trek one-way. As noted it runs close to the road, but traffic was light as was the trail on a cloudy Sunday morning in February.

20 minutes from my front door, great trail for training

Great place for a relaxing bike ride

great trail. was there today, sunny and a little chilly. amazing and beautiful!

Great trail - will always be a favorite of mine! Nice and short, my mapping is a little extended due to helping someone down the mtn. Really important to wear proper hiking shoes.. very muddy and slick!

Trail is in great condition. It was super cloudy when I went so not many views, but a hike for the rain since there is so much cover.

Can be crowded

It was nice. Super super easy. Couple good stops to watch the river. Bathroom just a little shy of half way. Good city hike. It’s paved almost the whole way.

Easy walk to take the dog on and I love people watching on the waterfront but there's much better places in the area to go to.

Easy, dog friendly hike

The dog park is amazing!!!

Started at Riverfront Park and spent 90 minutes hiking mostly paved paths. Easy access. Great for beginners.

Great trail for a workday workout. Great city views. Loud on Eastside but that wS expected

Figured it was a Friday and most people would be at work - wrong. It hadn't snowed enough, so the roads were accessible and in good enough condition for anyone to get to. I was in a 4runner, though there were icy spots, it wasn't necessary to have 4wd. Hike was beautiful, as always, but waited over an hour for a tub... As I was leaving (around 2pm) a large group of about 10 people was hiking up the last part of the trail, with 3-4 more groups on the trail. Popular for a good reason, but I still have not found the perfect, quiet time to go.

Rated 3 due to crowd size.

Great trail. A little muddy at some points during rainy season.

Going south on the Oregon Coast trail from the Thunder Rock Cove pullout,the trail goes through forrest.At Natural Bridges there is a nice view.Continuing south it comes to open area above a cove.Further south the trail goes to another view area before dropping down to beautiful China Beach.
