A decent 2 mile hike. Very easy. Has a few areas you can picnic at with tables. We went in the middle of September so there was no "lake".

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.

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.

Lower Macleay Park to Pittock Mansion

Its a nice moderate hike in the city, for most folks it's a great hike with rewarding views of the city at the top.

For climbers- It's not a true elevation conditioning hike like Dog, Kings, or Defiance, but if you are short on time it's the best elevation gain in the city that I know of. It can be used to train for bigger hikes if you weight a backpack up with a bunch of water and hike at a fast pace to keep your heart rate up

Beautiful hike! This hike is longer than 3.8 miles. From the car our round trip was almost 6 miles. Elevation is accurate though. I love that it is right in the city, but you won't feel like you're in the city at all!

No information on where the riding occurs, where to go! Literally dropped me right by the road. No additional information. Drive around for 10 minutes looking for signs or trails. Nothing to go on!
