One of the places that makes Portland special. You can wander for hours and see trees from around the world Some of the paths are quite steep and most aren't paved so it could be a challenge for those are less physically fit.

Wonderful hiking trails, knolls for relaxation, opportunities to volunteer and get involved in outdoor and gardening projects. Informational talks available to learn more about plantings, trees, and insects.

There are several trails through which you can walk. Some are short and some are long. Take your pick. There are not many seating areas, but great observations of nature. Some of the trees are identified, some are not.

Follow the paths through the woodlands. Take the redwood hike and find yourself deep in the woods communing with the giants.

Great place to explore all the wonderful plant life in Portland. Great short and longer hikes, a botanists dream. Be sure to visit the Audubon Society that is close by to get double bang for your nature buck!

Great walking paths that wind in and around the various 'areas' of types of trees. Trees are grouped into sections of types from Sequoias to Weeping Willows, etc. and they area a great place to see some nature in the heart of the city and to relax or picnic. Go in the evenings or early in the day on the... More

A bit of history, a bit of 'museum' and a whole lot of nature. Walking the Hoyt Arboretum is a must for anyone who loves nature, giant trees, good trail all within a quick tram ride from downtown Portland. Grab a piece of nature in your city visit

Expansive, easy to walk, plenty of trails for strolling, running, exercising your dog, whatever. Nicely labeled trees of every conceivable variety with plenty of information about them. A cute little gift shop with good books. There is nothing that is not wonderful about this place. I make it a point to spend a couple of hours here on every visit... More

The Arboretum is unlike many others, as it is actually a series of trails through the park, not one well-marked area. The trails themselves are well-marked, and take you to many of the must-see Washington Park sites like the Vietnam Memorial, Zoo, etc. There is also a very small information/gift store.

A lot of beautiful subtropics plants and flowers that reminded me of my East Asian home. Convenient access to public transit. Adjacent to Forest Park and the Zoo.
