This is a great park that is almost hidden, unless you get off the beaten path. Heading north next to the Willamette River on Highway 30 toward the St. Johns Bridge, the park sits on the bluff to the south. From there it appears to be a forested area, but instead it's one of Portland's greatest hiking parks. Altogether, it... More

There are so many tall and lovely trees here that your breath will be taken away although my allergies are strong there.

Walking and biking trails through this forested area in Portland Oregon. It is not really a "Park" as much as it is an outdoor adventure. Not sure how many acres it is, but it is huge! Beautiful and serene!

Forest park is in a word, serene... There are lots of walking/hiking trails and it offers a quick little 'get away from it all' feeling, located directly above downtown Portland in the SW hills. Science tells us now that 'forest bathing' (walking or spending time in forested areas) is directly and measurably related to better health and better immune system... More

I love hiking Forest Park year round. It is muddy but quiet in the winter. If you research the trails, you can find busy spots or less people.

My 29 year-old friend wanted to do something special before turning 30 at the end of December, so we hiked 30.2 miles in one foggy day. This is the review of that experience. I am a 40 year old male in decent shape. The trip did not require an abundance of physical fitness, just smart footwear planning, a bit of... More

Not far away from the city it is a place with many trees where you can enjoy the nature and the relaxing low winds.

One of the largest inner city parks in the US that creates a break from downtown to the westside. The park has lots of trails, but most run north to south and so there is very little opportunity for circular routes. So it is usually an out and back. Almost all of it is tree covered to it can make... More

With all the many paths winding through this area, it is a lovely place for a walk, with or without dogs (on leash). Gorgeous trees.

If you love to hike and no time to drive to Columbia Gorge or Tillamook area. Well, this is the place. Ive been hiking this place for many years. And brought my kids here when they were little for fun and picnic.
