Trail shared by Eric Ashley

A popular forested trail between two trailheads

Family Friendly Kids can easily tackle this scenic trail through the woods.

Description

This peaceful and popular section of trail leads from the Willamette Trailhead to a spot just across the road from the Fox Hollow Trailhead. Starting from the west, the trail quickly passes through a grassy field dotted with oak. Soon after, the gravel path heads into a bright forest.

Over the next mile, the trail reaches its high point before descending to an intersection with the Ridgeline Trail: Junction to Spencer Butte Main Trail (turn right here if you're heading to Spencer Butte).

The remainder of the trail winds down tree-and-fern-covered slopes to end at Fox Hollow Road across from the trailhead. Keep right at a split in the trail that appears between a few switchbacks (the left side is residential access).

Flora & Fauna

Watch out for poison oak.
