Limited free parking and pay parking are the only negatives of this treasure for nature lovers. Dog (on leash) friendly. Your dog will whine and yelp every time you pass near this dog walking heaven. After a rain the little creeks make natural music and slow the clock of the working grind. Just slow down and reconnect with nature. It... More

My husband and I hiked from the trailhead at the south end of McClelly Park/Trail and did the 4-ish miles to Pittock Mansion and back. It was just the right amount of challenging and enjoyable for me. I live in Indiana, so the hills were not something I do every day. Absolutely beautiful. There are maybe 4-5 areas where there...

My husband and I really wanted to experience Forest Park while visiting Portland for the first time but were somewhat intimidated by so many options for Trailheads and were also a little concerned about potentially getting lost. After a little research we decided to drive up to Pittock mansion and start from there....amazing! We're from Iowa so don't judge me... More

We started the hike from behind the Japanese Garden - and I was a little nervous with the initial steep climb - but it quickly leveled out. The walk/hike was smooth, flat and Gorgeous. There were an occassional runner as well. Great photo ops of lovely sun filtering through the moss laden trees. We will be back!

Even on a crowded day, it is still a lovely hike in Forest Park. Many other trails shoot off this one. Don't leave anything valuable in your car though. The area is known for break ins. A lot of homeless hang out here, out of sight, but they are there.

Wildwood Trail (actually 30 miles trail distance) is always pleasant to run or hike, regardless of weather or the time of day. Mud and fallen trees add to the excitement during the winter months--good trail shoes will make a world of difference in the rainy season. In the summer, the forest provides plenty of shade from the hot sun even... More

Wow, miles and miles of hiking paths. What a way to unwind and see Portland's wonderful park, Forest Park. All kinds of things to see and enjoy on this trail that meanders along Portland's history as a great metro area giving you wonderful views, entertainment, and enjoyment. Get away from the rush of the City and enjoy Nature.

A 5000 acre wooded park just a couple of miles from downtown is very special indeed. Trails run throughout the park for various users. A few closer in ones are over used, but for good reason as they are spectacular especially along Balch Creek. There is a movement to continue to expand the park to create a wildlife corridor all...

I have not hiked the Wildwood and its various offshoots that make up the Sylvan ridge area of the '40 mile loop' for many years. If you visit Portland or even live here and want a little exercise and great views without leaving town, you can't go wrong with this hike. We started from the parking lot above the zoo... More
