Hoyt Arboretum is a part of the huge city park in Portland called Washington Park. The park is a must in general but the Arboretum is definitely one of the highlights. Incredible amount of different trees and plants. Very nice hiking trials for everybody as they are pretty easy. Great!!!

Inside of the park it is kind of a drive through area to get to the next point but they do have a little pull out with some interesting information.

The weather was a bit rainy so decided not to rent a car for a trip to the Columbia Gourge. Instead my partner and I... More

Lots of nice trails and a friendly visitor center. The trails are 'easy' to walk on, so anybody can visit this park, I believe there are also some wheel chair accessible areas. Some free parking is available along the streets. We loved the giant red woods

It's a nice retreat away from the city sounds. If your not sure where to go on the trails just pick on and look around at the natural beauty that surrounds you. The lady at the Arboretum visitors center was friendly and provided maps. It's overwhelming not being sure where to go on the trails. I found that beauty was... More

Hoyt Arboretum is a great forest with great paths where all the trees are labeled so you know what you're seeing. The trails are fairly easy hiking and are very scenic. It's free and a great way to spend an afternoon.

We had the opportunity to visit and see the variety of trees from magnolias to redwoods. The hikes were very doable and the spent here was well worth it.
