Family Hiking at it's Best

Clearly marked paths through an absolutely gorgeous forest. Perfect to take short hike or to spend the day. Different trails for different skill levels. Dog friendly.

Peaceful park that's kind of like the many other parks in PDX. Good stroll for all ages whether active or not.

This was a nice hike to do on a Sunday afternoon. It goes by Pittock Mansion, which was where we were going and wasn't too hard to do.

I loved that within Forest Park exists within Portland. Miles of trails and once you are going through the park, you can easily forget that you are still in the city. I recommend a visit to all new to Portland. Beaufiful

Get a trail map. It may help. There are lots of trails, miles of trails. Dogs on leash but not always. Leash law protects the resident wildlife habitat. Not many toilet facilities.

The park is quite extensive with beautiful towering trees guiding you thru the forest. It's a popular park with the locals: we saw walkers, joggers, runners, and bikers on the (main) trail, many with dogs (on leash). The trees obscure the view of the shipyards below, so you begin to feel as if you're truly in a lost forest. There... More

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 trees are magnificent, a great place to take guests to hike or if you are new in town to get away from sight... 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
