Love this trail! Really pretty and mostly paved so really easy fir people with disabilities, in a wheelchair, or pushing strollers. Loved all the trees and grassy areas.

Neighborhood walk for me. Not really a hike per se. It is a great place to walk our pup... Chimney off lead dog park abuts Pier Park making it a great combo of on/ off lead for our dog. It also offers a disc golf course and some tall trees for when you just don't have time to get out to the woods proper...

Good day hike!

great little loop. only saw a few other people (nice weekday in February). a bit sloppy, so definitely bring some old towels for your dog

This is one of those one-timer trails where you feel satisfied after visiting one time with no desire of going back especially with a dog off leash. Too close to the road for comfort. One thing that made it worth to see is to see the St John bridge up close from the ground up but that’s about it.

Been looking for a little longer hike in North Portland that is a loop and not in and back. Found this trail to be great!

A great trail to let the pooch run around. Not many people.

Easy, dog friendly hike

Fun with good views and not too many ppl.

absolutly beautiful!

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

Beautiful but they don’t go anywhere! Although it’s a pretty way to move between Doernbecher (and Starbucks and the family play structure) and Campus Drive, which leads to Terwilliger.

I loved the trail!

Beautiful, peaceful hike that I'd definitely do again

I would have given it 5 stars but the porta potties reeks so bad if you were Within half a mile of them. other then that was perfect on a hot day.

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!

The short segment that runs along Johnson Creek (2.4-2.5 mile mark on the elevation map) is closed due to a landslide. Detour via Redwood Trail.

So much to do in one place. One of my favorite places Portland

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!!
