This park is awesome! It is huge and well maintained. You can choose to hike for just an hours or days. It is very easy to get to and a great place to spend some time surrounded by nature and friends (friends are optional!).

It was a rainy Portland day so we took the afternoon to drive the huge park, turning this way and that. I look forward to its many hikes when the weather permits.
