We love hiking here. They have wonderful paved and clearly marked trails. The maple trail was beautiful in the fall! There is a large, clean picnic area with a picnic shelter and clean bathrooms, so we sometimes pack a lunch to eat there. A well maintained park.

Hoyt Arboretum has a huge collection of trees, shrubs and other plants; all in a beautiful setting with extensive hiking trails and outstanding views of the city of Portland as well as to the north as far as Mt Rainier. Magnolias in the spring are a special treat as are the many maples and other trees with their fall color.... More

We loved our walk through Hoyt Arboretum. The park was large enough to feel off in the woods while wandering on well maintained trails, compact enough to allow us to customize the hike to fit our time constraints, and well mapped so we were not lost. It was fun to find a piece of sculpture.

You will feel like you are in a forest far from the city. Exceptional. If you go during the rainy season, be sure to touch the redwood tree trunks. They are spongy wet. If you like trees or nature, this is a must see. Not exactly a hike but a challenging walk for us older folks.

Visited there many times as a visitor to Portland and as a resident. Peaceful and relaxing, good for walks and getting fresh air and sunshine. Even in the light rain it is very enjoyable.

Great views and a perfect place any time of year. Even with rain, we didn't care. One of the better hikes you can go on.

A lovely place for a walk or a hike. Even though we were there on a drizzly day in October, it was fantastic. We took the light rail up from downtown. It lets you out at a underground station. When you come up outside you are near the zoo and the World Forestry museum. It's hilly and a 10 minute... More

What a fantastic place to hike! The visitors center is small but you can obtain a free map, get directions and then you can hike all types of terrain but be sure to look up this time of year to enjoy the colors! Fantastic place!

We came here expecting a greenhouse or some gardens on level land. Instead, it's a series of hiking trails on hilly terrain through forests. They have a wonderful variety of species here, especially examples of redwoods and sequioas; you almost feel you're in the Redwood National Forest. Like the International Rose Test Garden (also in Washington Park), this is free,... More
