“Link with Wildwood Trail to see all of Maple Trail while completing a loop in north Forest Park.”— Todd Johnson
A couple of short, steep hills add variety to a course that's mostly gently rolling. Downed trees are the most common obstacles, with two easy stream crossings also along the way.
When running along Wildwood toward Maple, you'll encounter a sign that says "To Maple Trail." Ignore this sign; it is a short cut through some brambles. But from here be alert; the actual turn off to Maple is easier to miss, as it's a T intersection where the signs are not optimally placed.
Turn right again and follow Leif about three quarters of a mile. Enjoy the peace and quiet along the way on NW Leif Erikson Drive Trail - it's easy to zone out as you take in the sounds and sights of the forest, and forget how close you are to the city. The trail surface is generally smooth and wide, so there's room for the many bikes you'll likely see along the way.
After about three quarters of a mile, you'll find Wiregate Trail. Wiregate is a left off of Leif, and runs a short way steeply uphill to Wildwood Trail - National Recreation Trail. Turn left onto Wildwood. This trail provides for a quiet and serene run through varied and evolving forest ecosystem.
After a little more than five miles on Wildwood, Maple is another left off of Wildwood. Maple will bring you back to NW Saltzman Road where you turned off, and the trailhead is about half a mile to your right.
