I came here with my husband while visiting family. It's a very short drive on the outskirts of the city. We parked at the Pittock Mansion and there was a trailhead right off the parking lot. We were able to take a loop that was only a couple of miles. It was a peaceful hike through the forest. Keep an... More

If you go to any metropolitan area in the United States, you find plenty of green space and trees, gardens and parks. However, there is nothing like this park anywhere else. There are trails that are highly popular like Leif Ericson, and there are others where you will not see anyone. It covers so much space, there are microclimates with... More

We drove around here to get a feel for the area (because we thinking of moving) and fell in love! It is beautiful and lush and we can't wait to come back with our dogs. The website for Forest Park was so informative and offered so many helpful ways to obtain a map of the more than 80 miles of... More

Only took a short trip here but it was gorgeous and would have liked more time to hike!! I think it's a great place to run! And everyone had their dogs which I also thought was great!

Returning from Canon Beach,OR on US 26E we diverted to rt 47 to the north Willamette Valley Wine country. We passed a few signs for various vineyards but only weekend tasting. Continuing towards Forest Grove we saw the sign for David Hill Vineyards and decided to press on The road off rt 47. It was a few miles before reaching... More

3 of us visited Portland twice this year and both times we visited Forrest Park. We come from Edmonton with our own river valley trail system and we are less then 3 hours form the Canadian Rockies. We absolutely loved Forrest Park and spent so much of our first trip to Portland In April hiking in Forrest park (and in... More

The brochures we were trying to rely on to find the trail were not detailed enough to get us there. And maybe there were some road signs we missed, but a few more sure would help! It didn't help that the direct road we wanted to use was closed for road work that day. As visitors, we had to do... More

You can run all day up to 82 miles worth of trails if you dare for it! :) And it's within proximity in the heart of the city of Portland! Super shady, friendly trails, steel trails, muddy trails, you name it...I ran here over the summer. Very safe in general...with lots of friendly and family hikers.

We drove through here. It's a beautiful scenic drive-just outside the City Center. We only saw one place to park-that's why we drove the whole way.

I just took my son out to Forest Park yesterday and it was great. There were several other people (and dogs) out on the trail, and it was a crisp, rainy fall day in Portland. Just the kind of weather for hiking! It's not too far from town, and we still feel like we get away from the city.
