I can’t believe this is near downtown Portland! We hiked from the Lower Macleay trailhead up to Witch’s Castle and then to Pittock Mansion. The trail was maintained well, well marked, and beautiful. The views from Pittock Mansion were spectacular. The total hike to the...More

You won't believe you are in the city. Kudos to Portland for preserving this forest. We did the Lower Macleay Park to Pittock Mansion (5.3 miles). It was very aerobic and steep in many parts but so beautiful and worth it.

Forest park was beautiful. Only a few minute drive from Portland. If you park near the saloon bar, you are at the trail head.

We stopped at Forest Park to see Witch's Castle while visiting Portland. The internet site we found this free activity on didn't prepare me for what this actually was. To get to Witch's Castle isn't as easy to get to as we first thought. It...More
