If you live on the treeless prairie, run don't walk to this place. So many types of trees, it's mind boggling. The trails are well marked and named after the dominate tree in that area such as Redwood trail (one of my favorites), Magnolia Trail, Spruce Trail, etc. These are short walks, you won't trudge for hours.

Spent an amazing afternoon at the Hoyt Arnoretum. Best to take the MAX to Washington Park and follow the well signposted trails. We were amazed how much fun it was to spend a whole afternoon looking at different tree species. Who'd have thought it!

We took a nice leisurely stroll through all the paths and admired the trees. It was gorgeous and very peaceful. After we left, we walked down to the Japanese Gardens.

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!
