Great hike! My only note is that the trail actually starts at Tolinda Trailhead in Germantown and connects to Waterline deeper into Forest Park. Because this isn’t specified in the listing it could be confusing to some. As a new hiker this trail was perfectly challenging. It does get steep but not alarmingly so. The trail was dry and hard packed, and the scenery is beautiful. Skyline Tavern at the end is a plus. It’s a quaint saloon-style bar with beautiful views and fire pits. I would recommend both the hike and the tavern.

Great trails in Forest Park. We go often.

Great family hike! We had success with a 3 year old and 8 month old. Parking at Springline and looping around through Firelane 7. Get there early for parking.

Great trail! There are some parts with overgrowth on the trail, but they are far and few between. Wear long pants and you'll be fine.

Great hike for an after work workout. Trails are in good shape, canopy of trees that the light shines through. At the beginning and end of the trail there is a beautiful view of the Columbia River, though power lines are in the way.

Great workout and a beautiful well-kept trail. Not for someone with bad knees.

It was a nice walk in the shady forest on a hot day. No views to speak of. Nice to have Skyline Tavern for a beer so close on.

Very wooded area, not too bad of a hike. A few steep hills, very nice dog walking trail.

A little tight to pass other dogs on & a ton of runners

I really enjoyed this hike. I arrived at 8 AM and found the very limited parking full so I parked about 1/4 mile away on Thurman. This hike was on the easy side of moderate for me. There were a lot of people running the trails and plenty of off-leash dogs.

Lost the trail when waterline is supposed to intersect Leif Erickson. Can take tolinga or Leif Erickson down. Ended up being seven miles to the car.

short and simple... good for a casual hike

Nice, well marked trails. We only did 4 miles and there were a few decent inclines, but overall it was quite easy. We saw quite a few people, but it was still quiet.

Beautiful trail with a steep grade coming in and out with some exposed roots / uneven terrain. As mentioned in a previous review, be sure to follow the map in the app as the full Wildwood trail does not make this exact loop. Nice cover from the trees. Not too crowded. A few walkers with dogs - some on leash and some off. Parking was easy.

Nice little hike in the woods and close to downtown Portland. Enough elevation in the first mile to get a good sweat going. There was a tree down on the Alder portion of the loop. Plenty of chipmunks and birds.

A little muddy today. Did fire lane 1 to wildwood mile post 11 to 16, then saltzman road to Leif Erikson then back up fire lane 1 to get he gate.

A group of 15-20 people of all ages just completed this beautiful hike in about 2.5 hours. Such an incredible hike!

Nothing too hard, few bumps and muddy after a rain. Just have to watch for hikers if you are biking. Nice forest ride, if it's a hot day you can expect it nice and cool under the trees

Nice trail. Clearly marked and well maintained. Went on a Thursday morning and only saw a handful of people. A little muddy in spots but not bad.

I completed the Lower Macleay trail then continued on with this trail. Wasnt able to finish, definitely more moderate level for me than easy like Macleay was. However, was made significantly harder by the weather conditions, very rainy making it very muddy and slippery, to the point that I fell right before the parking section about half way through the trail. Without those conditions, I would've been able finish it, but still beautiful trail moderately challenging overall. Not as accessible as Macleay, would not suggest for anyone with any sort of needed mobility devices or canes/sticks. Lot more rocky, elevation changes, and smaller width trails.

6.4 miles, 2 hours 19 minutes, great in the Spring, hiked this 5/12/19. PROS: a very beautiful section of Forest Park that is a bit more remote than other sections. Really pretty in the spring. CONS: quite a few people as it intersects with multiple trails.
