Beautiful sunny, cold, quiet Monday in the woods! Trail is well maintained. Would have given full stars had there been a view of the four volcanoes not blocked by trees!

Nice section of Forest Park's Wildwood Trail, and associated views from the elevation, with easy access from Portland proper via Ridge Trail. Hats off to the City of Portland for Forest Park!

20 minutes from my front door, great trail for training

Been looking for a little longer hike in North Portland that is a loop and not in and back. Found this trail to be great!

Did this in late December 2017. The road coming from the river had a big landslide section about 1 mile East from the trailhead on Newberry Rd. and was closed. We decided to just park at the closure site, and walk. It looked like people can still drive and park at the trail head coming from the West side of Newberry Rd. Beautiful trail that is well maintained, but I hope they fix the road soon.

Short and Sweet but yet great nature immersion. There are about 5 muddy spots but other than that, nice trail

It’s nice not having to park along the main road in this area of forest park. The trail is a little less traveled than some and the other hikers seemed a little more chill. Would recommend.

Great hike! Not hard. Moderate is a better tag. Enjoy!

Very good trail

Would have been a 5 star if there wasn’t so much industrial noise at the end. Beautiful during the fall/winter with snow on the ground.

Ridge trail is a fantastic hike, the first 35-45 mins are a moderate upwards climb until you reach the top of the ridge at one of forest parks many fire lanes that are also accessible for hikers. Along the way up there are many trails that intersect the ridge trail including the largest of the parks trails; the wildwood. This means that the ridge trail can be an out and back hike as described here or it can be a lovely start to an amazing all day hike. I️ live in St. John’s where this trail head starts and have many times on a cool sunny morning headed up the ridge and wound up all the way in NW Portland five or six hours later after meandering through the countless beautiful trails of forest park. I️ would recommend this hike to anyone!

Beautiful hike for a muddy trail!

This was a nice hike. it was about 45 degrees and drizzling so I pretty much had the trail to myself. the first mile or so is where the elevation is steepest. When you get to the top there is a long old logging or maintenance road that can lengthen your walk. that is wide and more or less flat. You can get down to the St. Johns bridge on the Willamette from here as well. my guess is from the very small parking area at the trailhead to the bridge and back is maybe 5 or 6 miles.

No scenic views, overall a relatively boring forest walk

Was a great hike. Perhaps I didn’t go on the correct trail, but the one I went on didn’t seem hard at all.

Includes 2 trails: Tolinda trail, which starts at Germantown, and then it connects to Waterline trail which goes to the top -- and Skyline tavern. Nice elevation gain, not too bad except it was muddy, however, it's November so that's expected!
