We hiked trails from Audubon Center down the lower Macleay park trails to NW Thurman Street overpass, up through the neighborhood streets to the Cumberland Trail, then up to the Pittock Mansion, and then back down to the Audubon Center. It was an afternoon of walking with several stops to see views, admire houses, and "picnic" at Pittock Mansion. Wish... More

This giant chunk of forest is a great resource. Every time I come to Portland I have to spend at least a half day hiking here. I can't imagine Portland without it.

Great trails, highly accessible. Easy to do with a toddler but we would've enjoyed it on our own, too.

You can't get lost here because the trail signage is excellent, which reminds me of Switzerland. No matter what time of year, you can enjoy a walk in this massive park, probably the largest within city limits in the USA. Douglas Fir and many more trees. If you must bring Fido make sure the dog is leashed and you carry... More

What a beautiful place to go for a hike in downtown Portland. The park is like an oasis in the midst of a city, and offers great trails for all levels of hiking enthusiast.

We had a difficult time finding the right trail to the witch's castle. Good hiking trails otherwise. Had a transient strung out on drugs follow my teen daughters and I from the parking lot to the Witch's castle and said some creepy things to us. Luckily some nice folks with their dog walked back with us. Not a place to... More

Not very many cities have spectacular parks like this within minutes of downtown. Forest Park is just beautiful, with trails for all levels. We hiked for 90 minutes which was all the time we had. But you can spend a whole day as well. That was enough to see the beauty of the park. Various activities from runners to families... More

There are lots of spots to stop and spend time like the Audubon and zoo however Forest Park proved a great spot for a 2 hour+ hike.

Take a hike (literally) and you'll see any number of great things--epic trees, moss, flowers, a dude staring down into a book while sitting off to the side of a trail, dogs, runners, joggers, families, more moss, more trees, stones, dirt, elevation, streams, waterfalls, bridges, the same dude reading the same page in the same book nearly an hour later...

Beautiful scenery, and nice hike. About 1 mile in is the "Which's House" which our teenage daughter and son thought was really cool.
