Maps, Directions and Trails Conditions

Forest Park stretches more than seven miles of Northwest Portland along the eastern slope of the Tualatin Mountains. The park is open every day of the year from 5am until 10pm. We've developed the following map to help you find your way to some of Forest Park's more accessible trailheads. Click on any of the blue pins below to view additional details or to generate custom driving, biking or public transit directions.

Updates on Current Trail Conditions

The Forest Park Conservancy's staff and volunteers regularly monitor trail conditions and works with Portland Parks & Recreation year-round to ensure the safety and stability of all the soft-surface trails in Forest Park. We update this page as we learn of trail closures and other information on trail conditions. Another source of information on trail conditions is the Portland Parks & Recreation website.

Wayfinding on the Wildwood Trail and Leif Erikson Drive

The Wildwood Trail has been designated as a National Recreation Trail, meanders for 30.2 breathtaking miles, from the southern end of the trail at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington Park to the Northwest terminus of the trail at Newberry Road. Starting at the Vietnam Memorial/Oregon Zoo, the trail is marked every quarter-mile by blue, diamond-shaped blazes stenciled onto trees about six feet from the ground. The mile markers are located approximately two feet above the blue diamond, and show the distance from the Zoo/Vietnam Memorial trailhead. The Wildwood enters Forest Park proper when it crosses West Burnside St. at about Mile 3.

Leif Erikson Drive, once a road traveled by automobiles and now a wide forest trail, extends 11.2 miles from the NW Thurman St. trailhead to NW Germantown Road. Mileage on Leif Erikson is marked by white concrete posts on the right side of the trail as you travel north from Thurman to Germantown Rd., and show the distance in miles from the NW Thurman St. gate.

Once you get to the trail head, you'll want a map to help you find your way through the 80+ miles of trails, fire lanes and forest roads inside the park. FPC recommends these terrific resources.
