Forest Park

Barbara Walker Crossing and Wildwood Trail

Closed: Barbara Walker Crossing and nearby sections of Wildwood Trail are temporarily closed. City engineers continue to inspect Portland Parks & Recreation (PPR)’s Barbara Walker Crossing, the bridge for people to use when crossing Burnside on the Wildwood Trail. This will help to better understand what repairs may be needed after a tree crashed down on top of it. The bridge may need to remain closed until early March, 2021. PP&R will provide updates when information is available. 

Wildwood Trail from NW Cornell Road to Pittock Mansion

Caution: Hazardous tree conditions on Wildwood Trail between NW Cornell Road and Pittock Mansion. Use Upper Macleay Trail in both directions.  

NW Germantown Road Trailheads

Caution: NW Germantown Rd trailheads are open as of January 14, 2021. Please be mindful that conditions throughout the park are muddy, unstable, and may change. Follow all caution signs and markings onsite for your safety.

Wildwood Trail - mile 10

Caution: There is bridge damage on Wildwood Trail at mile 10. Proceed with caution. This bridge is about 3/4 of a mile north of the Wildwood/53rd Trailhead and 1 mile south of Firelane 1.

Wildwood Trail from Koenig to Cleator Trails

Closure: Wildwood Trail from mile 14.2 to 15.4 is closed to address trail conditions. Please follow detour route on Koenig Trail, Leif Erikson, and Cleator Trail. Click here for a map of the area during the closure.

Newton Road 

Caution: There is a small landslide towards the bottom of Newton Road, about half a mile from the Newton Road/BPA Road Trailhead on St. Helens Rd/Hwy 30. The landslide is located at a creek crossing. Please use caution when using the trail in this area.


Marquam Nature Park - shelter area

Caution: The Marquam Shelter parking lot is open, but there has been significant damage to trails and roads nearby. Please use caution when accessing the park as gravel roads have been scoured, several downed trees are blocking trails, and conditions are unstable. Our crews are working hard to respond to storm impacts in this and other parks across the city.
