This is a capsule day trip version of why you came to Portland. It’s an easy hike. Public transport drops you off right in front. Easy.

This a picturesque park where you can go for a walk in the woods along a creek in the hills. The moss covered trees and a beautiful maintained trail. A close walk from Portland neighbourhood. It is well worth the visit.

A very large city park that makes you forget you are in the middle of the city. It is home to numerous facilities that in each of their own right are worth traveling from far away to see.

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!).
