“A 30-mile rolling singletrack trail through America's largest forested urban park.”— Forest Park Conservancy
For support, plan on caches at 53rd (mile 9) and Germantown Rd (Mile 24.5).
Parking at the beginning is in a pay lot right at the Vietnam War Memorial or for free just up the hill by the arboretum.
For much of its duration, the Wildwood Trail overlooks the Willamette River as it stretches onward, through the northeast slope of the Tualatin Mountains between NW Skyline Boulevard and NW St. Helens Road. This trail provides for a quiet and serene run through varied and evolving forest ecosystem. The Wildwood enters Forest Park proper when it crosses West Burnside St. at about mile 3.
Forest Park itself plays host to hundreds of mammalian species: more than 100 kinds of birds have been seen in the Park!
