Beautiful summer trail. Lush, few other people. Signage not good

It was a good little hike for my first solo with both dogs. It was moderately trafficked, especially at "intersections" of the Wildwood trail. Lots of wildflowers & berries & butterflies. Elevation could be considered moderately difficult, but not an issue for experienced hikers. Over all a very pleasant day hike.

Anybody know if there's horse trailer parking off Skyline Blvd?

Limited parking at the gate. Follow fire roads 13, 12, and 15, and return via Wildwood Trail. Well marked.

A little tricky, but the app is a godsend! Parking is very limited, and trailhead/parking unlabeled. Across from light blue house.

Pretty easy hike. Amazing view of St Helen about the 1/2 mile point. After the zig zag part of the trail, the climb up is steep and challenging. That is the only part that is moderate and definitely gets you breathing and sweating. I'm definitely doing it again and again.

Beautiful hike! A great mix of shade and sun. Mostly under a canopy of trees. Pretty views of Mt. St. Helens and the Columbia River. Recommend!

Awesome trails ... some people think they don't need to leash their dogs ... it's a respect thing other than that it was great

this was confusing to follow on the trail. I took BPA Rd. along for a while before the trail split to firelands 13 and another direction. I took the other direction. Found AMAZING views of the Willamette but also a steep hill going down. Plan for a steep incline on the way back!!
