Forest Park Hike

Hike at Forest Park - 7.5 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.

    New to doing activities through meet up groups. I thought I did an RSVP for the hike and now I see I am on a wait list. Can someone explain that to me?

      We have a limit on the hike so we don't overload the trail. But feel free to come we can spread out on the trail if we have more than the 15.
