“This is an easy loop through a beautiful lush forest that is right in the Portland metro.”— Karl W
This loop begins and ends at the visitors center which has a small nature center and park information. Head north along the paved sections of the Old Main Trail, past the gazebo and link up with the North Horse Loop, a multi-use trail with a wide gravel-fill surface. Stay to the right/east when the North Horse Loop splits. At the northern end look for a spur leading towards the "Law School" and then shortly thereafter look for the Lewis and Clark Trail on the left/west. This is a nice windy foot trail that heads south. You'll pass the 4th Ave Trail which leads to a small parking area and then cross Terry Riley Bridge, a short suspension bridge.
Soon you'll arrive at the "center" of the park: High Bridge. This is a study bridge build over Tyron Creek with a three-way intersection on each side. Cross the bridge and look for the West Horse Loop. Take that and hang to the right/west when it splits. Ignore Englewood Horse Trail and turn back to the east. You'll come to an intersection with Cedar Trail, one of the nicest trails in the park, and turn right/south. This is a nice singletrack trail closed to horses that rolls and winds through the forest.
Stay Cedar Trail until you come to Red Fox Trail, a "T" intersection. Head left following the sign towards Red Fox Bridge. This is another nice bridge over Tyron Creek. Take the switchbacks up the hill to Old Main Trail, a very wide forest road type trail. Head right/east towards the main parking lot. You'll arrive at the visitors center fairly quickly.
