TOTAL MILES: 6

Elevation Gain: 960

PACE:   Quick 3mph

DIFFICULTY RATING: Moderate due to pace and one steep hill.

TYPE: Lollipop

ESTIMATED HIKING TIME:  2 hours

PERMITS:  None

DOGS: Yes, Dog Friendly, Dog must be on leash for the entire hike.

This will be a quicker paced 3mph, 6 mile hike at the western end of Forest Park.

We should finish before dark, but be prepared with a headlamp or flashlight.

This loop commerates the 1997 purchase of 73 acres of privately owned land deep within Forest Park that fixed the hole in Forest Park.

We will start out at the Newton road trailhead of the Wildwood trail. Follow it to the BPA road, down Firelane 12, then climb up Firelane 15, to the Wildwood trail, to Newton road.

This end of Forest Park is quiet and serene, no grand views, best described as a nice walk in the woods.

What to bring:

Flashlight or Headlamp

Sturdy hiking boots/shoes

• Layers of clothing that can be adjusted or removed as necessary (NO COTTON!!!)

Rain gear

water

whistle

* Please note if the hike is full, you can choose to be notified of a open spot . What this means is that if a spot opens up everyone who wants a spot will automatically receive an e-mail notifying them of the opening. The first person (whether on the waiting list or not) to RSVP gets the spot.

    Hi Tim, got caught in traffic and not going to make it. You all are going to have to have fun without me. Maybe next time :(

    I will be bringing my 7yo sheltie mix, Derek. This will be his first group hike, but he loves going for hikes. Occasionally, he is barky upon meeting other dogs, but is fine after a sniff hello.

    Planning on bringing Abbey, my 3 year old yellow lab. She hiked 8 miles in a group at Forest Park and loved it. Would like to know if others are bringing dogs so can plan on animal relationship management:-).
