Portland, Oregon Map
VIEW FULL MAP

This trail is in a well maintained forested area across from Saint John’s, and a few miles north of downtown Portland. I wasn’t paying attention, and ended up going off the marked rout onto another trail, and was able to connect back to the suggested path easily by following the map in the app. I added another 1.5 miles in doing so, but still had a good time.

Started tracking on the way down.

Amazing Portland “getaway!” Took my pup and she loved exploring and rolling in the leaves. Wandered all around the main trails and then over to the Winter area. Way-finding signs are exceptional, so it’s impossible to lose your way (and easy to wander). Trees will probably be at their peak in the next few weeks. Friendly crowd as well - lots of hellos. Really love this Portland park, especially on a weekday afternoon if you can swing it.

Beautiful, serene little nature park in the city, popular for the neighborhood. A few mini trails interconnect, and there is usually flower art throughout. Saw quite a few mushrooms. Easy, fun little foresty escape!

The good: quiet, beautiful, leafy hike. Not too many people; mainly trail runners and some folks improving the trail (thank you!) Nice leg workout. Really pretty trees and tranquility. The bad: as others have mentioned, the trail is super confusing. I actually turned around half way through on Maple for fear of getting lost in FP forever. It just became stressful to keep track of the route. This route was still a good ~ 6 miler. The trail is also more suited for runners; you don’t really have the payoff of reaching a destination or see many views (you’re deep in the forest along the Wildwood). Lastly - no garbage to be found for my dog’s #2! In short: this seems like a great route if you’re a runner and know where you’re going. Super quiet and low traffic. For hikers with a pup, not necessarily the most gratifying route, but still a great exercise and forest bathing opportunity!

This was more of a nature walk than hike. Nice area. Kids enjoyed it.

early october around 11:30. this was a pretty good hike, not too steep and very pretty. lots of little critters and great views since it's following a ravine. went with a teenager and a younger kid and they were good though the trails are a little skinny so when other people are crossing you really have to stop and let each other pass. and runners fly by so be careful around them. but over all great new place to hike! on a popular day parking is a little tough but theres extra street parking.

This was the perfect trail for my first solo hike with the pooch. Beautiful and just the right amount of challenging for a great workout. Gets busy about 10-11 so go early!

Nice on wildwood and Newton, BPA was killer. Nice views though! Good for conditioning. Parking at the bottom on 30 was nonexistent. Parked off of skyline and went backwards.

Don’t take the suggested route. So hard to follow. Just pick a trail (spruce, fir, etc) and follow the signs

Great trail. Much improved since last I walked it. Still some incomplete sections near Old Spaghetti Factory. It'll be even more fun when the waterfront goes all the way through to complete the loop.

Not as pretty as some of the other sections, but it’s relatively flat

Another great stretch of wildwood. Quite an incline from a spawn trailhead.

Very nice section of trail. Peaceful stream and a coyote sighting

Went backwards and went from maple ridge, middle creek, big fir, and old main was a really nice hike and would definitely go again. The bathrooms at the nature center are clean and the nature center is nice and There are plenty of trails to choose from also.

Great hike in the city. We started at Lower Macleay and hiked to the Pittock Mansion. It came out to 6.1 miles round trip. Parking at the mansion is tough, especially on nice weekend days like today. Beautiful views of Portland and Mt Hood from the front lawn of the mansion.

It’s a lot more hills than it seems. If you’re on a single speed bike, it’ll be punishing (like I was). Lots of foot traffic and several road crossings, but beautiful views and off the main roads.

This is a great running trail! But unless I went a wrong way and didn’t notice (quite possible), I’m pretty sure it’s 10 miles and not 9!

the most challenging part of the hike is from the 322ft. to the 541ft. level. steep angle but worth it. Good views.

Beautiful varied path, no mud, trees changing color. Amazing redwood and sequoia lookout platform was worth the trip!

Not a bad way to spend an Autumn afternoon. The first part is the best- a wooded trail. After Willamette Park, it’s all uphill through neighborhoods. Pretty if an urban hike, and 99 steps, is your thing! At the 99 steps on the way back up make sure to turn around here & there to catch views of Mt Hood. Overall, this hike a little bit of it all; 50/50 trails versus neighborhoods, plus river & Mountain views.

early october around 12pm. good hike except its steep in areas even with the switchbacks, but manageable. I did the pittock mansion hike then the lower macleay part second and that seemed like a pretty good way to go. parked at the upper macleay parking which has a lot. its more muddy if at all towards the lower macleay by the river and where theres no sun. lots of hikers as well and lots of dogs.

Beautiful everything

Perfect fall day for a nature walk in the city.

This was a really fun Saturday morning hike! My boyfriend and I are new to the area so this was a great way to see some of the Portland sights such as the Japanese garden and the arbortoreum. It was a pretty easy hike and decently easy to follow.
