The Wildwood Trail is a wonderful alternative to your gym's aerobic machines and what I call "street walking" or running/jogging through neighborhoods. I generally do some form of physical activity 4 or 5 days a week, in part to train for Olympic distance triathlons. My...More

We were planning to hike Macleay Trail, but it was closed due to construction, so we opted to take Wildwood Trail as an alternative. It was a little hard to find from the streets of the neighborhood where we started, but we were able to...More

My daughter and I did the 2.5 miles from Lower Macleay up to Pittock mansion. It's hard to believe that a park this green and dense exists right in downtown Portland. There were some steep climbs and the persistent uphill really tested our legs. It's...More

The Wildwood is a wonderful 30-mile urban trail. I have hiked its length annually (in short stretches). It is relatively secluded, but yet popular. Except for the last 3 miles, it is possible to hike sections in loops which saves out-and-back hikes. Although the last...More

We started the hike from behind the Japanese Garden - and I was a little nervous with the initial steep climb - but it quickly leveled out. The walk/hike was smooth, flat and Gorgeous. There were an occassional runner as well. Great photo ops of...More

Even on a crowded day, it is still a lovely hike in Forest Park. Many other trails shoot off this one. Don't leave anything valuable in your car though. The area is known for break ins. A lot of homeless hang out here, out of...More

Wildwood Trail (actually 30 miles trail distance) is always pleasant to run or hike, regardless of weather or the time of day. Mud and fallen trees add to the excitement during the winter months--good trail shoes will make a world of difference in the rainy...More
