This unique 5k course weaves through quiet suburban neighborhoods and follows the Forest City Trail, part of the Portland Trails system, for about a mile. The trails are fairly wide except for a quarter mile section near Mile 2 that is single-track and goes uphill. A few roots and rocks stick up on the trail, so runners will need to be aware of their footing. However, regular road running shoes should be fine on the course.
