Forest Park has very specific bike-legal trails. Be sure to stay on the bike-legal trails.

Description

Starting from the parking lot on Newton Road, the trail starts off fairly flat and rolling. After about a mile, the steep downhill starts for about a half mile and continues winding down the steep hills of the Tualatin Mountains. As the trail drops to lower elevations, Portland's industrial district can pop into view through the trees.

At about a mile and a half from the start, the doubletrack crosses a stream and turns into singletrack for the remaining half mile.

The trail terminates at the foot of the Tualatin Mountains, on the broad shoulder of Highway 30. There isn't a parking area, and it's illegal to block the gate, so your ride will likely never start from the bottom. Prepare for the grueling climb up BPA Road or start back up Newton Road.
