HikingGreat!

Well marked trail at every junction. Trail rolls around dense forest, some minor ups and down, mostly flat.

Great trail even though it was raining. The trees provided shelter from the rain. Many people and dogs. Everyone was friendly.

We took our kids (5 & 9) on the Wildwood loop. It was mildly busy, but easy enough to social distance. A little bit of mud in spots. We counted 18 different types of wild and native plants in bloom. It took us about 2 hours and 15 mins but we took many snack and rest breaks.

Lots of mud! Especially on Waterline. Last bit on Trillium was straight uphill. Fair warning: it’s closer to 7.5 than 7 miles total. Took me just over 2 hours. Nice afternoon jaunt!

Did not quite follow this entire loop, but this is a nice, trimet accessible hike. filled with tons of ferns and leafy trees. I imagine it beautiful in the fall.

Love running here! Steep getting in and out (I usually walk the last steep section for a cool down). Dirt trail with lots of roots, gets very muddy but always a fun time!

We started going in and out on Springville rd trail instead of Hardesty. it adds about a mile and it's a nice, gradual, smooth ascent or descent on gravel. The Trillium is a good heart pumper to go out with!

Last half mile was pretty rough on my hip, which isn't the greatest. Definitely an easy trail up until that point. Lots of dogs off leash the whole time but they were all friendly.

We took our daughter. she's five and did very well on this trail. My daughter is a big fan of wild flowers. which we seen plenty of Alon the path. We took the Wildwood trail most of the way but decided to take the Ridgeway trail rather then the full loop. which was also nice. some places can be steep. nothing to difficult thought.

Beautiful trail with a steep grade coming in and out with some exposed roots / uneven terrain. As mentioned in a previous review, be sure to follow the map in the app as the full Wildwood trail does not make this exact loop. Nice cover from the trees. Not too crowded. A few walkers with dogs - some on leash and some off. Parking was easy.
