WildWood Trail

Wednesday May 30 – Washington Park: 10:ooam

Wildwood Trail 3.6 mile Loop to the Hoyt Arboretum.

This is a Easy hike with a 500 feet elevation gain. I am told it is not a difficult hike with children; that it is a great hike easy hike to take kids on. I have not personally been on this trail yet. I am told it does cross several paved roads.

Anyone have info moms should know?! Please post comments.


Please Meet at 10am in Front of Max station opposite World Forestry Center.

— start trail at 10:15am

Directions: Can access this trial from the MAX Line. This is the same parking Lot as the Portland Zoo and Children’s Museum off Hy 26. It is best to park at the far end of the zoo’s huge parking lot beside the Max station across from the World Forestry Center.

I thought this was the perfect hike for us to start out on. Since it is located in the city-easy to get to — we can all get to know each other better — have lunch etc… if anyone is interested we can find a spot to hang and have lunch either during the hike or afterwards.

Bring your Lunch or snack. Bring enough water for you and your child(ren). Dress for the weather (layers? rain coat?). Wear comfortable shoes (running shoes, trail shoes, hiking sandals).

Make sure that your child(ren) are prepared for the 3.6 mile loop OR that you have a Hiking carry pack to carry your child.

any questions please contact me

If anyone has suggestions or would like to post helpful information about this particular hike please do so.

Please sign up 48 hours in advance. Cancel 24 hrs in advance.

Look forward to hiking with everyone!

As of Sunday May 27, it looks as though this is going to be a 80-85 degree day. Please prepare yourself and children for the extra warm day!
