Runner Notes

Wide, gentle slope that connects to many side trails.

Description

Fire Lane 7 is a wide dirt swath that runs .7 miles from the trailhead at Springville Rd. to where it spits into Fire Lane 7A (Gas Line Rd.) and Oil Line Rd. It is appropriately dubbed The Avenue of Trees as it descends through mostly Big Leaf Maple and Red Alder, with some Western Red Cedar.

As it is a south-facing slope, it is a home to many wildflowers that catch the early spring sun that adorn the gentle slope. Yellow Woodland Violet and Wild Tiger Lilies are abundant as are Western Trillium.

It is very popular for dog walkers and runners as well as hikers. It also provides a connection to the Hardesty, Trillium, and Ridge Trail, so making it is very easy to make it part of a larger loop with inclusion of the Wildwood. Along with the inclusion of Fire Lane 7A, it follows the ridgeline that separates the Doan Creek and Springville Creek watersheds.

All manner of birds may be spotted and/or heard as you stroll down this easy trail. Blacked-Tailed Deer and many small mammals frequent this trail.

Flora & Fauna
