Completed all 30.2 miles (+ over to Pittock viewpoint) NOBO today in 13 hours and 20 minutes. Whoever designed this trail is cruel but also genius. It was amazing to feel like you’re in the middle of the forest yet be so close to so many neighborhoods. My longest day hike to-date and I’m definitely feeling it. Left the zoo at 7am, got to Newberry Road at 8:20pm. No detours so they must’ve finished the bridge. Sorry Portland Parks and Rec—I didn’t see the suggested one way traffic until 20 miles in

We only hiked a small portion (maybe 4.5 miles) on a hot day but had an overall great experience. The trail was well kept and there was adequate signage! Highly recommend!

Went for a two hour hike and it was great! Beware of dog poop bags on the trail, but otherwise it was perfect!

Loved this trail, great for taking dogs! I could see however when it has rained how the trail could be muddy af or washed out. However dry days it is amazing!

We hiked the whole trail from North to South. It's an intense hike. The trail itself is not hard, but 30 miles of walking ended up giving me pain and fatigue from neck to foot. I recommend carrying poles just in case you need extra stability as you start to really feel the aches and pains. Finished under 11.5 hours. Stopped at mile 15 for lunch and Ibuprofen.

I originally intended on doing this hike back in March, as the first of 5 hikes to complete the Wildwood Trail. Then with the quarentine I postponed my original start date. Nice hike, lots of people and dogs. A few features, like the view from Pittock Mansion and following the creek back past Stone House to Lower Macleay are nice perks.

I wasn’t able to finish the hike, it was blocked off. I truly enjoyed the beginning of the hike. I’m excited to one day complete it!

Great trail with multiple easy access points. Best in the summer for running when it’s not muddy and it’s shaded. The northern end is relatively secluded from other runners and hikers.

Great trail for a day hike near Portland. It was a little muddy in some spots but we managed to get around it. Green everywhere and enjoyed the sights

The most beautiful cathedral of redwoods right before the Burnside pedestrian bridge. Even in the grey light a majestic rain forest , 1 min. from downtown Portland but seems like stepping back in time.

Today we hiked the Wildwood trail from the intersection of the Garden Trail by the Japanese Garden to the Zoo in Washington Park. It was a beautiful foggy fall hike, mostly downhill. As you get closer to the Zoo there are many intersecting trails at the Vietnam Memorial, Holocaust Memorial & Hoyt Arboretum, and each intersection has a well marked sign. A lovely, leisurely hike.

The first 15 miles were cake, the next 11.2 were worth it and last part was brutal! Good luck, make sure you have enough water. I’m going to go back to looking up crutches online.

My boyfriend and I hiked from the connector Garden Trail at the Japanese Garden to Wildwood heading toward Pittock Mansion. We wanted to see the new Barbara Walker Crossing pedestrian bridge over West Burnside. You hike through Hoyt Arboretum to get to the bridge. For us it was a lovely Autumn day & we enjoyed a leisurely stroll.

Great trail, but with the new bridge they removed the road access and Burnside. Now I have to hike an additional half mile and cross traffic to catch the bus.

The section across W. Burnside is now open again after the dedication of the Barbara Walker pedestrian bridge on Oct. 27. No more hazardous crossings!
