Mudskating Lessons in Portland's Forest Park
Winter in Portland can be a little oppressive for those that aren't expert hibernators. The great news is that a little mud NEVER hurt anyone! Nor will a little rain. In fact, we found that rain + mud = smiles on a recent trip to "run" on Wildwood Trail. Forest Park has miles upon miles to explore and is nestled right into Portland's proper West Side. A hike/run/bike/Mudskate of any length is sure to be an adventure. (In the summer, of course, trails are dry. In the winter, just use caution as you slip and play in the woods!) We suggest parking at the MacLeay Gate off of Cornell Road in northwest and accessing the park from there. For detailed trail maps and to plan your Mudskate, check out the link below!
