Good, easy walk. Muddy right now.

I wouldn't say that this trail is a loop but it has a bunch of trails you can go up and then come back. I can't believe that this trail is right in the city. It's amazingly peaceful and you can hear and see the Creek on the entire trail.

sweet little spot in Reed College campus!

Great access. Excellent parking. Beautiful vista! Well maintained, signs post the way. Plus there is wheelchair capable trails at the top, visitors center, toilets and parking. Horseback riders and mountain bikers share some of the trails all is posted.

Great trail system in the middle of the SW Hills of Portland. Good climb, shady forest, and not too crowded during the week. Council Crest has an off leash area so your dog can romp and play.

Great trail if you’re looking for a bit of a longer hike, it gives you time to appreciate the beauty of the forest. I recommend familiarizing your self with the trail names as it can be a bit confusing on which way to travel to stay on trail

End-to-end is a fantastic way to spend a day. Forest Park is beautiful. magical and having this opportunity in the middle of a city is one not to be missed. The trail is well-maintained and not difficult. (Forest Park Conservancy in conjunction with the city, keep this trail in great shape!) Be sure to bring the food you will need for the day and enough water. Layers as well. Enjoy!!

Beautiful Trail.

Hiked this with a friend and two dogs. Beautiful hike. Some of it next to a stream. Completed the entire hike in just under 2 hours. 5.5 miles total. Slightly muddy in places after raining this past week, but not terrible.

The hike is beautiful, relatively easy, we had two large dogs, no kids. The only reason I starred it at a four is the signage is less than desirable. There are several points where little man made side trails that lead up to the houses were constructed and it quickly becomes confusing, specifically when you cross over Maple Crest Drive heading towards Arnold Drive. The top portion of the trail, north of the park, is beautiful and I would highly recommend for anybody with kids! Overall a reason to be outside on this lovely PNW day!

Nice little hike. Busy on weekends, but generally pretty peaceful on weekdays.

Nice trail, started at NW Cornell trailhead. Ran in 3 miles and back to trailhead, so I didn't experience the whole trail, but from what I did experience it was nice!

Lush nice mellow urban trail tucked away down a winding residential road. Very little parking. Nice play structure. Seemed well maintained to me. Good access to the creek and several bridges and small waterfalls.

Great trail, mileage slightly off. I started at one of the bottom Hoyt Arboretum parking lots and it was 4 miles to Pittock. There was also part of the trail closed with a re-route but the re-route wasn’t any longer than the trail would’ve been. Instead of coming back the same way, I did a loop through Hoyt Arboretum which made it 6.2 miles. Hardly anyone out on a Monday. The one thing to be wary of is that this trail brings you to the crossing at Burnside. There were breaks in the traffic to cross but just be aware that you do have to cross it.

Steep and muddy with great views of the bridge and peaceful solitude once you get away from the road.

With Kim and Eriq. Foggy morning.

Arrived at 12:30pm and a school bus was leaving (thankfully). Overall, it was crowded. My dog and I ran into 5 other dogs and 10-15 people altogether. Everyone was very friendly, but the trail is narrow and steep in lots of locations, so be mindful of Fido and the leash rule. Some muddiness, as to be expected. One bridge was out and atop the

Nice urban hike opportunity! Gorgeous flora and fauna. Majestic redwoods. Well traveled trails that are very well marked and have good signage.

A basic meandering trail mostly in within the wetlands. It does bring you onto the Springwater Corridor, which can get busy. The trail itself was easy to navigate.

Great views of St. John!

Great for a quick workout and view of Mt. Hood at the mansion.

Nice trail so close to the city. No particular views or so, just nice forrest. Definitely second part up to wildwood trail made the difference. There the trail gets more narrow with less people. One moderate hill in the middle, fairly flat for the rest. Parking might be a challenge on busy and sunny days.
