We enjoy walking at Hoyt Arboretum in the morning. There are enough people around to feel comfortable but not crowded. It is quiet though you can hear birds chirping. You will have to pay for parking; we are comfortable with spending $2 for such a treat. The circular upward pathway around the Vietnam Memorial is a nice path with lovely... More

I am a tree nut, so this park was perfect for me. Winding paths (some steep) through the woods populated with huge varieties of different species of tress was a wonderful way to soend a warm Oregon afternoon. The trails were not marked quite as well as I could have used, so at a few points, I got lost, but... More

I live at the base of Washington Park, and I take the Wildwood trail there at least once per week. Our family belongs, and our son volunteers at least weekly. The Hoyt Arboretum is a world class destination, and I highly recommend it. Be sure to stop at the visitor center first and plan your trip. Many plants bloom seasonally,... More

A wide assortment of meandering trails lead one through beautifully lush areas. Educational as well as peaceful. There are also spots to just sit and soak it all up. Worth a stop especially if already in Washington park.

Close enough to town and a wonderful morning or afternoon ramble for you and your guests. Not always easy to park, so we tend to favor an earlier start. Great walks with attractive specimens and good views.

Most people are so busy at the Rose Garden, etc., they miss this area of the park. We drove up here to park after everything else was full with the intention of taking the tram down. Then we decided to hike this trail (right across the street from the Hoyt Center building). The trail is easy with no steep inclines... More

I parked and just started following the paths. One path leads to another and pretty soon youre in the middle of nowhere completely surrounded by green beauty! The paths are easy to follow and suitable for any age!

I had a short list of things I wanted to do while in Portland on business. I asked my Mom and brother if they wanted to come on my business trip and they said they did. One thing at the top of my list was to go to Forest Park. My brother wanted to go to Hoyt Arboretum instead. He... More
