A great place to hike just minutes from downtown. Wildwood and dogwood trails are great for beginners. We use the alltrails phone app to navigate the twisty, intersecting trails and have loved going out for walks with the dog on most weekends.

Nice hiking right in town! We did an out and back - saw a coyote (walking on our same trail). Good footing. Very rain-forest-y.

Streatches for miles and miles throughout the city. Many people hiking all the time. Some areas have steep down hills. Can be scary to drive up hill in some areas to park car. Lots of low level pull over on the side the road and...More

Forest Park is a huge blessing to everyone in Portland. Fortunately most people don't get out to experience it so it remains very much a quiet place to hike and take nature walks.

We had a wonderful 7 mile hike despite the weather being very Pacific Northwest. Don't be deterred if it looks as if it will rain. There are so many trees, they provide a thick canopy to help protect you somewhat. It absolutely poured the last...More
