This was a quiet, peaceful hike on a sunny Wednesday morning. So many birds! It was a perfect hike for my young dog, who is learning to be a good hiker. We saw only there other people in two hours. Don’t be put off by the fire lanes – they go through lovely terrain. There’s a pretty little Buddha shrine at Wilson creek, look for it! It’s a lollipop route. And yep, that last stretch back is uphill. Here’s a good description from a Portland Magazine piece about trails in the park. From NW Skyline Boulvevard, follow Firelane 15, cross over the Wildwood Trail, and turn up Firelane 12 to BPA Road. Go right on BPA Road. Turn right on Wildwood Trail. Return via Firelane 15. (Moderate, 4-mile lollipop loop)
