“Love to hike here”

Marquam Nature Park
Ranked #130 of 475 things to do in Portland
Attraction details
Reviewed 8 September 2016

I've hiked here about 50 times, do it most every Saturday. Can bring your dog, but be able to control it! Different wildflowers at many times of year. Quiet. Can be some steep hikes. Wish the maps were more current, accurate, wish they'd add a new trail or two. Very easy to get to amidst urban environment. A great escape.

This is a great place to hike on a warm day as there is plenty of tree cover along most of the trail to keep the sun off you. It is very hilly so if that is not what you like, then not a place you want to hike. There are trails of varying lengths though so you can make it a short hike or a long one if you have the time. Easy to get too and near OHSU.

I am a biology teacher who lives in the desert. So for vacation, I wanted to visit a completely different biome, the Northwest Coniferous Forest. Hiking in this park, verified that the Pacific Northwest is the most beautiful biome in my eyes.

HIKING - My husband and I hiked this trail, and we are not in good shape, but it was very pleasant and we did not get too tired to go on.

FLORA/FAUNA - You MUST visit this park, the vegetation and creatures are so lovely! Your eyes will never get board because it is so unbelievable gorgeous everywhere you look!

TIME - We could have spent the entire day in this park. We visited after the Farmers Market on Saturday. We walked up to the park from a parking lot by the market. It was not a long walk, but there is free parking at the park.

The Marquam Trail is part of the 4T Trail (train, trail, tram, & trolley). You get to see a lot of Portland- wear good walking shoes & bring some water. It was a good hike with plenty of people & dogs along the way.

Better signage would go a long way to making the trails easy to find and easy to hike. After endless attempts to find the park we finally did. We did a two hour hike and it was just what we were looking for -beautiful scenery and great exercise!
