Forest Park BPA Road to Newberry Road Hike via Wildwood Trail

Hike Distance: 7.1 miles

Elevation Gain: 1352 feet

A very nice family hike at Forest Park.  The highlight of the day was seeing a Pileated Woodpecker on a large snag next to the trail.  We were within about 10-12 feet of it and watched it look for grubs for over 10 minutes!  The bright red crown was breathtaking!  We couldn’t get much of a picture with the smartphone.
