trail running


kid friendly

1st run in a couple years... defiantly a challenge little slick on the back but well worth it..

Great trail if you want to get out but don’t feel like driving out of the Portland area. It is muddy in some parts so make sure to have proper footwear.

My husband and I were visiting from out of town and really enjoyed this trail. It was beautiful and appropriately challenging.

Great leisurely hike. Wide path, not super steep. The trail was fairly populated - hikers, dogs, bikers. Pretty family friendly. Will return!

It's quite muddy right now. We took the loop counter-clockwise and were very happy we did. Holman way is extremely muddy, and a pretty significant incline, so it would've been tougher going down it. Also lower Maclay trail is posted closed for a landslide, but many, MANY people were ignoring the old blockade, so we did too. It was the least treacherous part of the hike, turns out. About 3 points on Wildwood portion of the loop required bushwhacking. Plenty of trillium in bloom.

the directions on here are stupid. gotta walk through neighborhoods. to walk from where it leads you said it would be 30 minutes

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.

Great trail for the family.

11-27-15. Only giving 1 stars. This place had everything I dislike in over traveled trails, many many people, dogs and dogs off leash (not everyone like your dog like you do) the trail was more like a dirt road it was so overused, I thought for sure we would round a corner and see a Starbucks. Oh yeah... decided to take a side trail and ran across a cardboard/fern bum house. The only reason this got 1 star was no option for 0. Also broken car glass in parking lot, luckily not ours. I'll post a photo of the stone house ( with the graffiti ).

this is not a mountain bike trail. it was a good down hill road but an unsure why it labled for mountain biking should be changed.

Awesome for the family.... Right in the city...

Great trail. Nice and easy for the whole family. The trail was a bit crowded and we had to walk single file. Parking was impossible and finding the trail head was a bit tricky but that could have been an error on my GPS. The old building was horribly vandalized and unkempt.

We did the Linnton loop which was around 7.5 miles. We saw very few people for a Sunday even though it was drizzling. The fall colors were great & lots of slugs & mushrooms everywhere. Most of the uphill work gets done at the beginning & then it meets up with wildwood. The rest of Leif Erickson was on a large gravel fire road. Coming back down to Hwy 30 was super steep. Over all a nice hike & a great way to see that section of Forest Park.

This is a great trail for groups of runners and walkers who go at different paces but want to start and end together. The trail is popular but wide enough to easily share.

Nice trail inside the city, but just too many people.
