“A scenic trail that drops over 1,000 feet from the trailhead at Forest Land to near US 30.”— Forest Park Conservancy
Between Wildwood Trail and Leif Erickson, the surface has a lot of stone with some larger rocks that can be hidden under fallen leaves in the autumn.
After Leif Erickson you'll start seeing several impressive Western Hemlock, Western Red Cedar as well as Lady and Sword Ferns. Seasonal wildflowers and fungi are abundant.
The bottom of the trail parallels US 30 for the next mile or so until you reach the end. Here you'll see several trails created by the black-tailed deer and coyotes, which frequent the area. From this point on there are many blackberry and thimbleberry bushes as well as cottonwood trees. Elderberry and huckleberry are also common.
The trail also changes to singletrack and gently rolls until descending to the end at St. Helens Road. There are views of the Willamette and Cascades to the east.
