There are many entrances to Forest Park but my favorite is the MacCleay Park entrance. You will walk next to a bubbling brook and as you progress you will begin to feel the cit disappear and feel as though you are in a beautiful mossy forest...which you are. When you come to the stone house about a half mile up... More

Forest Park occupies miles of north/east facing hillside above Portland and areas West. The areas closest to downtown have easily accessible trails that are well-maintained, areas further west are more wild. An easy and wonderful getaway for Urban Portlanders and visitors.

Easy access to a nice group of trails. Peaceful, mossy and occasional distant views of the Columbia River.

nice little park, it was designed by the same guy who made the new York parks. It has nice moss and friendly people. The moss is nice and all.

There are so many different entry points and hikes that are possible. Some with streams, link ups to Washington Park, etc. One of my favorite hikes is to hike through Forrest Park up to Skyline Tavern for beers and ping pong then hike back down at night, awesome!

If you need to escape the city for an hour or 2, go for a walk or hike in Forest Park! It was so beautiful and I didn't even see that much of the park! If I go back to Portland, I would definitely go back here for a hike!

One of many trails around the city. We start out early, and are back in town just in time for a nice lunch. Perfect and just off the Met.

Forest Park is not to be missed if visiting Portland and trying to get the "full experience". There are many many miles of hiking in lush greenery. The first few hundred yards of one entrance is wheel chair accessible, and the the rest of the hiking trails range from easy to very difficult. We took our children on a 5... More
