Many well documented trails to choose from with a range of difficulty levels. Great scenery, safe, and well designed for all uses (bikes, horses, walkers/runners). I've been exploring Forest Park for a couple of months, and there's still a great deal to see. This is a must experience, even for a short hike -- I'd start at the Thurman trailhead,... More

This park is in the city. Twenty paces into it and you feel like your in the forest of the Ewoks. Great 2 1/2 mile hike to the top, then a nice spot for a picnic. Great workout, too

Before you head out for happy hour, park your car and go for an amazing hike in the city! In 5 minutes you are surrounded by trees, next to a stream & breathing in great air.

Portland was my home for about 20 years, and Forest Park was one of my favorite places for exercising (bicycling and training for the Portland Marathon) and for a beautiful ramble in a natural setting. In every season, there was something to appreciate, and I never got tired of the walk or the scenery.

Loved a trail walk through this park early one morning. The hike was pretty and not hard and was beautiful to be with nature so close to to the city

This park was beautiful! However, my friends and I went in thinking it would be a somewhat touristy place with some bathrooms here and there. Not so. Google directed us to a side trail instead of the main entrance. We ended up walking across the width of the park. Very steep on some of the trails, but it was calming... More

Finding the entrance was a bit difficult, but that was probably just my gps. Overall, a beautiful place to go on an afternoon hike. The trails are pretty well maintained and you get to choose how difficult of a trek you take. Highly recommended, just be sure to bring water and appropriate clothing

Love Forest Park! There are lots of trails to choose from and it's beautiful and serene. I've even seen owls when hiking there. It's Portland's oasis within the City. Amazing place!

Very nice hike, dog friendly but leashes recommended. Shady, so good for a cooler option on hot days.
