What a wonderful place to visit! I thoroughly enjoyed strolling through several trails surrounding the Hoyt visitor center. The trails are amazingly quiet and beautiful. Other reviewers have commented that this part of the park likely looks very different in the summer, I think this is probably true, but even in the winter it was stunning. I visited on a... More

We just simply past the time and not much enjoyed it. Perhaps the Forest Park is very close to the place thus we were more attracted to visit Forest Park thus we did not really explore the place.

clearly this someplace you'd prefer to visit during the more seasonable weather but it is still a lovely place to visit during the winter solstice. I love how Oregon and Washington are green no matter what time of year it is an its a joy to see blooms midwinter.

I enjoy hiking around and running on the trails. Nicely marked trails and you can enjoy different landscapes while learning about the shurbs and trees as they are mostly marked. They also have maps to guide you if you get off track.

I love the Arboretum. It has several trails to hike and there are some beautiful views of Portland! It is a good place to run or just relax in the serenity of the woods so close to the city. Trails will lead you up to Pittock Mansion which is also an awesome place but that is another review.

We took a stroll around this park area, and enjoyed the trees even in winter time. Many of the trees were well marked with type and genus.

All-ages friendly with paved walking paths & little elevation changes. I recommend visiting in the different seasons to see different gardens that thrive in each of the seasons. The Spring and Fall are especially gorgeous.

I visit the arboretum whenever I'm in the neighborhood. It's that cool a place. Portlanders and tourists come here in droves, especially (but not only) on sunny days. Hoyt houses a world-class collection of native and non-native species, many with labels bearing common and scientific names and other info. On one side of Fairview Blvd., you'll find the visitor center... More

I have been visiting this arboretum for over 30 years. Peaceful trails and natural beauty. A great place for a quiet picnic.

It is another opportunity in Portland to walk among trees. The paths give you the impression you are in deep woods. There are excellent tall trees. It was a pleasure to walk.
