    Eli Boschetto
    "Take in a small sample of Forest Park on a 1.6-mile loop that incorporates the Dogwood, Wildwood, and Keil Trails, with options for creating larger loops if you want to explore more (see Go Farther). Unfortunately, the dogwoods for which this location was christened are gone. Back in the day, this area held a grove of native dogwoods, which were notable for their brilliant white blossoms. Even with their absence, this section of the park still offers plenty of other foliage to admire, including sword and maidenhair fern, Oregon grape, and trillium, all under a shady fir and maple forest."
