fun hike with a beautiful view! muddy and a lot of incline hills but so worth it!

Even with Pittock mansion being closed this was still a good hike! Great views. My dog loved it! Went around May 20ths

Beautiful trail.

I don't remember seeing this suggested route before, so I figured I'd complete it too. Normally I go over the Steel, Hawthorne and Tilikum bridges. Can't remember the last time I considered the Burnside route. It's not nearly as direct, as you have to meander under the bridge away from the waterfront to find the stairs. The other bridges are directly connected to the walking paths. The only other "concern" is that there are often gross substances and smells around the stairs up the bridge and "characters" hanging out around that area due to the presence of the Rescue Mission and other attractive services. I don't mind crossing paths with people from different "walks of life" at all, but if this concerns you (especially late at night), the Steel Bridge is a better crossing very nearby. If the Saturday Market is ever allowed to occur again, that would be in this area and make a great addition/distraction to your walk.

Easy trail. Fun forest views. Very busy.

Great trail but very very muddy and slippery today

Went there for mother’s day. Couldn’t had been better. Beautiful. 1.5 hours in the way up to Pittock Mansion, light snack and 1 hr down. One of my favorite hikes in Portland.

Great trail , a bit confusing but worth it ! Beautiful views along the way .

temporarily closed!

Gorgeous green scenery. Be prepared to walk up hill the first half but it isn’t overly hard. 2 chihuahuas made it just fine

Loved this hike! I went with my dog and a friend and her 9 year old son. It’s nice and shaded (it was in the 80s today) and busy but not crowded. I would suggest children under 9 not starting at the bottom trail head as the 2.5 miles up to the Mansion are all incline! Such a beautiful view at the top! Also, please make sure your dogs are leashed. We had 2 unleashed dogs come up to us and some dogs are reactive when they are on a leash and an unleashed dog gets in their space!

Sweet forest trail but pretty muddy right now. I would give it a couple weeks of dry weather before hiking again. Some trails closed due to “unsafe conditions”

Great trail for nice relaxing and peaceful walking, nice and easy for you to bring dogs along. Well shaded areas for when it gets too hot.

Great hike. Just enough incline/flat/downhill. Parking lot is small. CAUTION: two of my car windows were smashed while I did this hike. Nothing was stolen, I had nothing to steal. Just vandalism.

It does loop, however part of the “loop” is along the road. Once you come out onto Germantown road, take a left and head down the road. If you hike Fire lane 10 you will end up back tracking the trail, if you hike fire lane 9 you get dropped off into a small neighborhood. Hike to the back of the homes and there is a set of stairs to the right that will bring you right back to the parking area.

A fine trail, though narrow on the east side of the loop. My pedometer measured the trail at 3.3 miles, not including the out-and-back "arm" which we skipped.
