A beautiful getaway in the middle of the city

I love this park. You forget you are in the city. There are enough trails to explore for a while and long and steep enough to wear you out if that's what you are looking for. The... read more

We stayed overnight at a bnb and went out to nearby Forest Park via North Germantown Road. There are several trails on this windy road. They come up real quick so keep your eyes peeled for a turnoff. The terrain can be inclined but nothing too steep. Moss is everywhere and babbling brooks come out of no where. It is... More

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
