Wildwood Trail Terminus: Newberry Road
I’ve been biting off bits and pieces of the Wildwood Trail for years, and this year I think I completed all of it but about two miles, scattered here and there. That’s 30.25 miles of forest beginning across a parking lot from the Zoo.
Pretty amazing stuff for a city park. It’s one more way Portland resident are lucky in terms of outdoor recreation. I’ve been considering trying to do a one day hike of the Wildwood, but I’m not sure my knees are up to it. The trail isn’t particularly difficult, but 30 miles in one day is a lot for most ordinary human beings. While I ponder the possibilities, here are a few photos from that far end of the trail.
Even on a short hike in what seems like familiar terrain, it is easy to spot new vistas and interesting details that might otherwise go unnoticed. The Wildwood Trail is always good for a short or long venture. Stay tuned for a post on the famous Dog Mountain. Happy hiking.
