Where else can you hike on a Sunday morning five miles from downtown Portland and see two other people? Don't go if spider webs freak you out. (I'm used to them in this area by now.) Biked from Sellwood Bridge down 43/SW Macadam/Riverside. Highway has a narrow paved shoulder but traffic was relatively mellow, ok for experienced adult riders. Trailhead is a bit tricky to spot; preview it on Google Streetview, then keep an eye out for the guardrail on the stream right after it.
