An abundance of wildlife can be found in Forest Park – the largest urban park in the country. Forest Park’s extensive system of trails, fire lanes and gravel roads provide excellent opportunities for hiking, walking, running, and simply escaping the urban atmosphere. The 30-mile Wildwood Trail in Forest Park is part of the region’s 40-Mile Loop trail system that links Forest Park to pedestrian and trail routes along the Columbia River to Gresham, through southeast Portland, along the Willamette Greenway, and back to the Marquam Trail in southwest Portland.
