The north east trail section (0.2) does not exist. It was decommissioned about three years ago. Nonetheless it is a great network; but very steep and semi-technical in places.

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.

A beautiful area near the Willamette River and Lewis & Clark College with about 4 miles of trails. Most of the time you can't tell you are in the middle of Portland as the tree cover is very tall and thick. No major views, but the forest is beautiful by itself.
