“This can serve as a standalone trail, or be used to create larger loops.”— Nancy Wells
After the very short climb, Firelane 2 is entirely downhill except for one small section between Wildwood Trail and NW Leif Erikson Drive Trail. Much of Firelane 2 is a bit rocky, with hard mud that is slippery when wet. It is suitably wide for runners in all areas but there are spots where it is clear it served as a road, although more than half the "road" is overgrown. Going down this hill to NW Leif Erikson Drive Trail or Wildwood Trail is easy.
From the opposite direction, Firelane 2 is a bit easier to follow. It is clearly marked from the NW Leif Erikson Drive Trail and is a great option for people getting access to Forest Park from Forest Heights. At the top of the path and through the fence, you can cross Skyline Blvd, and to your right, see a stunning view down over Forest Heights and Beaverton, beyond.
