Fun cute little trail near the pond. Beautiful view. I went when it was snowing so if course it was muddy. I’d suggest going across the street to the rhododendron garden even if you have to pay the $5 admission in the spring time. It’s a gorgeous area.

Great trail in the middle of the metro area!

Beautiful sunny, cold, quiet Monday in the woods! Trail is well maintained. Would have given full stars had there been a view of the four volcanoes not blocked by trees!

my sister and I had a great time hiking here. it was a little muddy but I think it had rained the night before. overall, it was beautiful.

Was a great hike with a bit of a challenge I'm not a normal hiker but I would salmon shape. Had to avoid horse poop on some of the trails that was about the only downside

Very flat and very busy on the weekend. Some sparse, pretty views but nothing too spectacular. Great for children and puppies, probably a little unimpressive for regular hikers.

Nice section of Forest Park's Wildwood Trail, and associated views from the elevation, with easy access from Portland proper via Ridge Trail. Hats off to the City of Portland for Forest Park!

20 minutes from my front door, great trail for training

Dry and no mud today. Some cool birds in the swamp.

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

Beautiful. Peaceful. Easy directions and signs for all trail options throughout. Also extra cool labels on some trees. Excited to come back and try another trail option.

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.

It’s a pretty spot but not well marked. There is so many trail heads it’s not clear where you’re suppose to go. We also sought this one out for the ‘waterfall’ but it’s more like a creek going downhill. Great for kids and pets it would seem, not much for a direct hike.

Pleasant walk around marshes. Simple and flat. Nice for catching up with a friend.
