“A great urban hike”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Forest Park is a wonderful place to hike and explore right in Portland. Wonderful trails and lots of options to explore all within a few minutes of downtown.

“Peaceful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

You are in view of Portland's thriving downtown but you hardly notice. It is peaceful and serene here. A great place to go that is close to escape the hustle and bustle and get back in touch with nature.

“Awesome for short walks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

There are lots to say about Forest Park. Mainly its just a great place to go for walks or to enjoy for running too. There are various entrances to the park that you can also access from the city centre. Some great waterfalls too here I am told. Opportunities for numerous visits here... go explore!

“I Love This Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

Forest Park is my sanity restoration place. I can be there is a 1/2 hour from my house and be in deep woods within five minutes, Many trails do get muddy in the winter, this is Portland, but Leif Ericson usually is in good shape year round.

“forest park visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

walked around the Pittock mansion. Did not have enough time to tour. Did some of the hiking trails - very good. You can park at the Pittock mansion lot and walk to the japanese and rose gardens . We were ther mid week, expect the parking is a lot tighter on weekends. Great park
