Council Crest Park

4T/Marquam Trail: Summit Trail to Council Crest Connector
Due to large, downed trees and trail damage, the 4T/Marquam Trail is closed in Council Crest Park from Summit Trail to the Connector Trail. Please use the detour on Summit Trail. For your safety and that of PP&R staff, please respect trail closures and use other trails in the area.


Forest Park

Lower Macleay Trailhead
Access to the entrance of the paved trail at Lower Macleay Trailhead will be impeded while crews install a curb ramp to improve ADA access. The construction is expected to begin in June and could last up to 3 weeks. We will update this page with more information as it becomes available. During this closure, pedestrians can access the paved trail using the staircase from the Thurman Street Bridge, or via a temporary access pathway at the Lower Macleay parking area. Please use caution around the construction zone. 

Wildwood and Wiregate Trails
From the end of May through August, 2024, Wildwood Trail from Trillium to Firelane 7A (mile 18.6 to 20.0) and Wiregate Trail will be closed for utility maintenance. The Wildwood closure will happen first, once that work is completed and the trail reopened, then the Wiregate closure will begin. As work is completed and trails reopen, this page will be updated. There will be construction vehicles intermittently on Leif Erickson, Saltzman, Springville, and Firelane 7 to access repair sites. For your safety and that of workers, please respect trail closures and use other trails in the area.

Maple Trail
Effective immediately, Maple Trail is closed between Firelane 4 and Koenig Trail due to severe storm damage that has made the bridge crossing unsafe. We will be deploying crews out to assess the bridge conditions and install closure signage and barricades. Please do your part by respecting the closure and staying out of this area for now. Thank you! 

Ridge Trail parking area on NW Bridge Avenue
The Ridge Trail parking area on NW Bridge Avenue is closed indefinitely due to safety concerns. This area presents significant safety issues, including falling rock and inadequate space for pedestrians to walk safely along NW Bridge Avenue between the parking area and the trailhead. For your safety, please access the Ridge Trail by bus, bicycle, or walking; or, if you must drive, park your vehicle on the east side of the St. Johns Bridge and proceed across the bridge to the trail. 

Wildwood Trail at mile 11.8
There is a bridge out on the Wildwood Trail at mile 11.8. Please use the detour on Nature and Chestnut Trails to bypass the closure. 

Wildwood Trail at mile 15.2
Caution: There is a stepped bypass route to the bridge on the Wildwood Trail at mile 15.2. The bridge is closed. Please use caution at this temporary crossing and do not use the bridge.

Trail 3 and Trail 6

Closures: Trail 3, in the southeast corner of River View Natural Area, is closed due to a catastrophic trail failure where it crosses Stream 6. The area is extremely unstable. Additionally, a segment of Trail 6 is closed due to an unstable drainage crossing. Please see map for details.
