This is a 30+ mile trail. There are other trails that can be used to create a loop but it's easiest to turn back and go the direction you came.

Having said that, it's a great trail for running; the entrance is far enough out that you miss a lot of the crowds that you see on the Lower Macleay or other downtown trailheads. It's pretty level for the first couple of miles so it's great for beginning trail runners.

I rate this trail 5 stars because the views cannot be beat. Its the perfect workout mixed with beautiful scenic views. There is never a lot of people on this trail making it peaceful and calming. This trail is definitely a hidden gem. its a easy opportunity to enjoy 5k in elevation

Salmon Butte Trail

The distance is wrong here - it is actually 12.17 miles due to a road wash out at the beginning. The trail itself is relatively easy, flat and gradual - it's the distance that makes this a moderate trail. I hiked this August 31, 2014 - mostly cloudy, early am rain made the vegetation wet, and high humidity. I think I counted 11 log crossings and 5 (small) stream crossings. There are few tree roots or rocks to trip over, you could run this trail if you were so inclined. I walk at a fairly good pace and carried about 8 lbs and made it out and back in 5 hours flat. The forest is beautiful, however, there isn't much to see until almost mile 6 when you pop out on a ridge with a teaser of the views. I could only see Mt. Jefferson and Sisters to South today - but a clear day would reveal Mt. Hood, Mt Adams, and Mt. Saint Helen's as well. The Salmon River at the start of this hike is a beautiful river, very scenic. Even with the rain last night many people were camping along the banks.

Wildwood Trail is the crowning gemstone of Forest Park, Portland, Oregon's world famous urban wilderness park. We've parked at the various turnouts and hiked sections of it. What's nice about the trail is that you can hike in a short distance and be surrounded by quiet, forested wilderness. Most of the hiking is easy to moderate, with lots of small creeks and mossy covered branches and rocks.

My son and I agreed that next year we're going to try hike the entire distance from Newbury Rd. to the arboretum. We'll let you know how that goes.

Garfield Peak Trail

The first day of a Memorial Day weekend is not the time to expect solitude on a hiking trail at Crater Lake. The park was teeming with tourists both on and off the trail. Nonetheless, the hike to Garfield Peak was both rewarding and beautiful. The trail starts at the backside of Crater Lake Lodge and is uphill all the way to the top. Along the way the trail skirts along the rim for some spectacular views of the lake, lodge and surrounding peaks. Some of the rim-side views are fenced and some are not so watch your step as one false move and you will be a statistic. As you climb, the views get better and better. At the top we encountered about 25 others that were ahead of us. Excellent views of the Klamath basin to the south and Mount Bailey and Thielsen to the north. I would rate this trail as moderate as hikers from all ages and fitness levels were at the top.

Mount McLoughlin Trail

August 30th, 2014 I climbed this mountain with a few people. the views as you are going up are quite amazing and the view from the top is even better. it took are group 4 1/2 hours to get to the top and another 4 to get back down noy including the time spent at the top enjoying the view and resting a bit. the trail is mostly rock and boulders as you get higher up and all rock the closer you get to the peak. start as early as possible in the morning (we started at 7:30 a.m.) to give yourself enough time to enjoy the view before clouds start to come in and before the sun starts to come out and it gets warmer on your climb. take snacks to eat along the way and enough water to stay hydrated. heavy packs are not recommended.

Saddle Mountain

This is one of the hardest trails I have done in Oregon, but the views are worth it. There are some incredibly steep sections that would be treacherous in wet weather. These sections are covered (yes, the ground is covered) in wire fencing to help with traction. Walking sticks are useful here. The 360 degree views are amazing, and I wish we had been there on a clearer day to see the mountains. I would not advise bringing children on this trail. It would also be nice if people let their poorly behaved dogs at home for this one as well. This is one of my favorite Oregon trails!

Went here with my husband! And oh my goodness it is so so beautiful:) such a majestic place. It is a nice little walk and such a magical fall to see! So worth the time to go out that far! Highly recommend. If you go on a nice warm day you can swim! Also you can walk behind the falls, which is fun;) where good hiking shoes cause it is a little slippery!
