Balch Creek to Pittock Mansion Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Balch Creek Canyon is one of the most beautiful urban canyons to be found anywhere.

The transition from crowded city streets to peaceful canopied trail and flourishing canyon happens so quickly that you’ll find it hard to believe a bustling city is just steps away. Located in the Macleay Park section of Forest Park, the trail begins at the Lower Macleay Park Trailhead and soon joins up with the Wildwood Trail. From there the possibilities are endless. The time-tested route up to the Pittock Mansion is just one of a number of classic outings in this area."
