Forest Park offers miles of trails from the wide gravel road Leif Erickson Drive to narrow single-track routes like the Hardesty or the Nature Trail.

The trail begins up an ivy covered staircase closer to the end of the St. Johns Bridge. You have to walk back along busy NW Bridge Avenue, so keep kids and dogs close.

The loop ascends up to a junction with Leif Erickson Drive. Continue on the Ridge Trail to the Wildwood Trail and turn left to do a counter-clockwise loop. At the next junction, turn left again to descend back to Leif Erikson which we followed back to the Ridge Trail.
