Forest Park Hike

Hike at Forest Park - 7 miles

Starting Point: Lower Macleay Park

One of Forest Park's most popular entry points, this trailhead provides access to the Lower Macleay Trail, which is only open to pedestrian use. This trail parallels Balch Creek, one of Forest Park's few year-round streams, which supports a resident population of cutthroat trout. You can access the Wildwood Trail .84 mile up this trail, which also happens to be the location of the Stone House, a remnant rest station from the WPA.

We will head up the Wildwood Trail and follow it around enjoying the park. We will make our turn around point at the crossing of the Dogwood trail.

Anyone can turn back early or go on longer if you would like.

 

  • Hiking or supportive shoes recommended hills and rocky trails.
  • Recommend Rain gear this time of year, just in case!
  • May want to bring water and a snack.
  • Dogs that are friendly and leashed are welcome. You must pack out the Poo.

    I have a plus one but when I went into add them the RSVP didn't have the option to add another person. That is probably because there is a waiting list. So if there is an extra spot for my guest by Saturday that would be great.
