Down, down, down. See the beautiful view of the St. John's Bridge. Then up, up, up to the car. Trail is tough, hard clay, so not muddy in rain, but can be a little slippery.

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!
