Forest Park is located on the outskirts of the north west side of Portland. It is incredibly easy to get to by foot from the city - this would be my recommendation if you are able to! The great thing about Forest Park is that...More
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!).

This hike is recommended especially for those without a car - you can easily access the trail and gives you a chance to see local flora - ferns, moss etc. The view when you get to the top/the mansion is amazing. Wear appropriate footwear. Expect...More

To help set expectations, Forest Park, is mainly literally a forest with a large number of hiking trails in it. The longest trail, the Wildwood trail is 30 miles long in one direction, so you could spend days covering all of the trails. In my opinion, if I only had one day and 3 hours to hike the trails, I would try to park near the Portland Audubon Society at the Macleay Park parking area and hike the Wildwood trail from there to Hoyt Arboretum and back. Along the way you would enjoy the spectacular views at Pittock Mansion. On a clear day, from Pittock Mansion you can see downtown Portland and 4 8000ft and higher mountains (they are really volcano)

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 friendly folks (NOT competitive except for a few; definitely no elite runners) that you can sign up for, day of, for $15. (They ALWAYS have space for drop in runners!)
