This place was great and so close to the city. We hiked up to the Pittock Mansion using the Wildwood trail. Such a great view of the city once you get to the top, amazing place to take some photos! The hike is very easy,...More

We were looking for a nice walk with our son, and it was idyllic. It was like an enchanted forest with some views, but also very wildernessy. I love the moss hanging from trees, and the coolness.

We parked intending to take the Lower Macleay Trail loop but found it closed. A local directed us to walk up Thurman, which turns into Leif Erikson Drive. From there we took Wild Cherry to 53rd, etc. The point is we could have wandered for...More

There are wonderful hiking trails within easy reach of downtown Portland! Get away from it all. Walk, run, or ride a bike.

Just kidding. But it is really like a deep forest basically n town. A multitude of tracks that can be hiked by anybody.

Great park, close to Portland. Great for hikes and runs. Especially early mornings or later in the day are special when the sun shines through the trees

Wow! One of the reasons I'd want to move to Portland is the availability of the outdoors right in the city. This is a beautiful place with plenty of hiking for you and the family to do. Pack a picnic and some cold local beers...More

Forest Park is an enormous, well, forested park. What makes it special, though, it that it is within the city limits of the largest city in Oregon. Hiking and biking trails give visitors a rare chance to enjoy the great outdoors and nice scenery within...More

If you're from out of town you'll probably appreciate how well Portlanders make space on the trail for runners. I know I do! There is also a Spring and Summer trail series - informal races between 5 and 8 miles with... More
