“A beautiful trail that offers scenic views as well a wide variety of plant life and wildflowers.”— Forest Park Conservancy
The six-tenths of a mile lower part of the trail is filled with a variety of beautiful forest plants such as Candy Flower, Vanilla Leaf, Western Trillium, Douglas fir, Western Hemlock, Vine Maple, and a wide selection of ferns. The trail gently winds up to the Leif Erikson trail, by way of several switchbacks and footbridges.
Once reaching the Erikson you make a slight jog to the left to continue up to the Wildwood Trail. This section winds its way at a slightly steeper grade for just over three-tenths of a mile, where you cross the Wildwood just short of the 21-mile marker to continue up the last section to Fire Lane 7.
Red Alder is common along this section as is Oregon grape, Solomons plume and Thimbleberry, as are seasonal plants such as the Wild Tiger Lily. The last part of this section flattens out considerably. After approximately .34 miles you'll reach Fire Lane 7, a doubletrack, multi-use trail.
