Wild Cherry Loop in Forest Park

Get your day started right with a stimulating 3.5-mile hike down the idyllic Wild Cherry Trail. 

We'll start out with a relaxing downhill walk, then turn onto Leif Eriksson Drive for a 1+ mile walk, connecting with the Alder Trail. We'll hike uphill on the Alder for another mile, then finish on the Wildwood and Keil Trails.

This hike is rated as Moderate, with a cumulative elevation gain of about 450 feet.

Please leave Fido at home, since it's possible we'll encounter runners along the way. Including photos and a short break, our expected time for this hike is approximately 2 hours.

Stop at the Skyline Diner for a bite when we're done, if you'd like (no credit cards accepted).

      The list is currently full, but you can join the waiting list and be advised by email if a spot opens up between now and 8 a.m. tomorrow.

    This is to move from the waiting list to the slot that has just opened. I don't see here a more formal clickable item.

      The open spot was apparently taken before you could respond.
