Leif Erikson Drive - Wildwood Loop Professional Review and Guide
"The route travels on singletrack trails and a doubletrack gravel road through the scenic treed setting of Forest Park. Tree roots. Bridge crossings. This loop route takes you on a wild and free run through the lush canopy of 5,000-acre Forest Park. A large section of this trail follows the Wildwood Trail that sweeps along the ridgeline through a predominantly big-leaf maple and Douglas fir forest, ducking in and out of side canyons and rolling up and down the fern-covered hillside. The return portion of this trail takes you along the popular Leif Erikson Drive, which is usually packed with walkers, mountain bikers, and runners. Water is available at the start of this route."

This is a great trail. It's nice because of its proximity to downtown Portland. There were many people hiking and jogging and just generally getting exercise. My trainer, Nick, (with Portland Personal Training and Weight Loss) had organized a group outing to get several of us out to do something active that wasn't in a gym. All in all it was a great trip, and I would do it again.
Awesome run. Narrow smooth trails through beautiful trees.
