Forest Park is beautiful! We visited in July and the view and the trees are amazing. You literally walk down a steep-ish mountain trail with huge trees all around you. Truly in the midst of the forest! I made the mistake of bringing a stroller,...More
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.
I love Portland, and Oregon in general, for it's beauty and all the opportunities for hiking and just admiring the beauty of the outdoors and the gorgeous city. However, if you are planning to hike Forest Park, make sure you know where to park, where...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!).

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)
