“An easily accessible singletrack trail for pedestrian use only, offering a variety of serene beauty.”— Forest Park Conservancy
It breaks off of the Wildwood Trail - National Recreation Trail at the 5.5-mile markerthe location of the Stone House, which was built by the City of Portland in 1929 as a rest station with bathrooms and running water. It suffered from repeated vandalism, and during the Columbus storm of 1962 resulted in severe damage to the plumbing and the roof. The city decided not repair the building, and instead removed all the fixtures, doors, and roof. All that remains is the stone framework.
The trail runs along Balch Creek, a home to native cutthroat trout and very environmentally sensitive. There is a split-rail fence along much of the trail as well as locations for sitting to rest and enjoying the surroundings.
A variety of birds and small animals may be found and even a barred owl might be spotted perched in the trees.
