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 were looking for a nice walk with our son, and it was idyllic. It was like an enchanted forest with some views, but also very wildernessy. I love the moss hanging from trees, and the coolness.

We parked intending to take the Lower Macleay Trail loop but found it closed. A local directed us to walk up Thurman, which turns into Leif Erikson Drive. From there we took Wild Cherry to 53rd, etc. The point is we could have wandered for...More

What a lovely surprise in the middle of Portland! We found a little parking area on an edge of the park - more like a forest, this the name. There were 2 trails from that lot and we took the easier of the two for...More

There are wonderful hiking trails within easy reach of downtown Portland! Get away from it all. Walk, run, or ride a bike.

To help set expectations, Forest Park, is mainly literally a forest with a large number of hiking trails in it. The longest trail, the Wildwood trail is 30 miles long in one direction, so you could spend days covering all of... More

If you're from out of town you'll probably appreciate how well Portlanders make space on the trail for runners. I know I do! There is also a Spring and Summer trail series - informal races between 5 and 8 miles with... More
