Basicallly I learned an "arboretum" is an large outdoor 'garden' of trees. In one part I was reminded of being in Vermont when amongst the Beech trees. Then another I was reminded of Michigan with the White Pines. Then California with the Redwoods. The star tree attractions may be the "Dawn Redwoods". In one corner of the park, "living fossils",...

We stopped by because the zoo was closed and ended up having a wonderful time. I loved seeing the redwood and ginkgo trees. The grounds were very well kept and the paths were easy to navigate.

The Hoyt Arboretum is within Washington Park-the free park shuttle will drop you there. It is free to get in the arboretum, too. There is a small store/information center, and the people who work there are friendly and knowledgeable. Filled with beautiful trails for casual and more strenuous hiking. JUST BEAUTIFUL!

Don't miss this great and relaxing experience very close to the Portland city center. Nice trails lead through a large selection of trees in a hilly landscape.

Great trails. I didn't feel as though I was in the city anymore. I can't believe how lucky Portland people are to have this park so near to downtown. I would do trail running next time.

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. Stop by the... More

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!

You can walk so many different trails and it is easy to walk for miles and not realize how long you have been walking because of the surroundings beauty and peace. I have seen so many different types of trees, shrubs, flowers and birds than you can ever imagine. This place is so peaceful. it was actually my first stop... More

You won't be disappointed with these trails among the tall trees. easy hikes for all levels of hikers. Plenty of birds and small wildlife so bring your camera.

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.
