First things first - you need to find your way to Forest Park. To help you find your way to various trailheads, we have created a handy google map with info on 19 of Forest Park's most popular trailheads.
Once you get there, you may need maps to help you navigate Forest Park's 80+ mile trail system. Here are your best bets:
Introducing our new Trail Guide to Forest Park in Spring 2013! Rain- and wear-resistant maps (printed on PolyArt) highlighting loop hikes or runs. Detailed driving directions to trailheads and along trails, pointing out highlights of each loop (hike distances range from 3 to 9 miles). Includes an index map of the entire park.
By buying the map directly from FPC, a greater portion of your purchase goes toward our stewardship efforts, maintaining and improving trails, and completing habitat restoration projects. You can purchase this map set at our office located at 1505 NW 23rd Ave, on the corner of Quimby & NW 23rd Avenue, or call us at (503) 223-5449 with your address and credit card information.
Another great option is the Green Trails map of Forest Park. It has great detail on topographic lines, distances, elevation profile, trailheads and surrounding city streets. It also features a close-up map to help you navigate the web of trails in Washington Park and the Hoyt Arboretum. Best of all, it retails for just $12. You can purchase this map through our online store, by phone (503-223-5449, ext. 101) or at our offices at 1505 NW 23rd (at Quimby).
Suitable for framing, these popular, beautiful poster maps were created by Erik Goetze at The Art of Geography and are available through our online store or at our offices on NW 23rd Avenue.
