We did this today and it clocked in at 4.2 miles, not 3.2 as listed. Also, none of this trail was closed.

mid October around 1pm. this was a great easy to moderate hike with some amazing forest views! the fall folliage was great and still hadnt changed all of the way. I will say its a bit confusing with all of the different trails but there are maps available at the visitors center to help. also not sure if I was just missing it but one of the trails by the small parking lot doesnt seem to be there but thankfully there is another trail 20ft up that connects so you'll still be able to make the loop no matter what with all of the options.

Beautiful varied path, no mud, trees changing color. Amazing redwood and sequoia lookout platform was worth the trip!

One of the first trails my family and I discovered when we moved to Portland. Washington Park is a personal favorite of ours, and offers comfortable benches along the way. Great escape.

This is a great, easy hike! We enjoyed walking through the Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial and then into miles of canopied trails. It’s amazing how we can be so close to the city, but yet feel so far away!

Nice variety in this hike, popular trails mixed in with views of Japanese Gardens. Rose Gardens were crammed with roses in full bloom & visitors but the rest of the loop was more sparsely occupied. Work on reservoir was interesting but loud.

Beautiful walk in a variety of trees. Lots of trail intersections so had to keep checking the map. Japanese Gardens, Vietnam memorial, Redwood deck, Hoyt Arboretum. We parked at the visitor center which has pay parking and nice rest rooms, and walked the Oak trail to connect to the loop.

A good chunk of this trail was closed right in the middle (no city views as promised), with no mention of it having a detour at the trail heads. The trail intertwines with myriad others, the markers are quite confusing in some spots, and the trail names do not line up with what was downloaded on my map (from this app). We ended up adding an extra 3 miles - which then didn’t even record - and had to use apple maps gps to find our way back to the car. Pretty frustrating for a day that started out so wonderfully. Thankfully the weather was perfect, and the trail was pretty.

Good hike. Signs are kind of confusing so make sure you pay attention to them and make sure not to take wrong trail. Redwood Deck is a cool area to check out the trees!

Was a bit Confusing but we will definitely be going Because there are many things to do around that area. We will be going back tomorrow to explore all the other areas we didn't get to explore today.

It was ok, I'd definitely call it a mostly easy trail with a couple short steep sections. biggest problem was the stretch right off the memorial, which has lots of criss crossing trails that were confusing enough that I had to check my map a dozen times. Not knowing the names of the component trails was a problem until I got to where I can stay on Wildwood for a long time. Maybe would have been more logical going counter clockwise. At any rate, it's a good hike that feels mostly secluded despite being urban and you can detour to a little viewing area on Wildwood.
