More than a park, this feels like you've traveled an hour or two away and are climbing a mountain! Or leisurely hiking, it's not physically demanding if you don't want it to be.

Basically in town and a bus ride from anywhere. Great park for an easy walk or long hike. There are a lot of people on parts of the trails (near parking and bus stops) but it doesn't take long to get away from them if you're willing to hike a bit.

Forest park is one of the treasures of Portland. It is a great place for running and hiking and is surprisingly within the city. I loved getting lost there and marveling at the moss-covered trees. Seussian and magical.

Absolutely beautiful Sooooo green. Maybe the weather is worth the beauty? I don't know. I guess it has to rain so often in order to be so green!

Finally got to visit Forest Park and highly recommend it. After eating and drinking the best Portland has to offer, Forest Park was perfect for working some of the calories off. Even get in an hour or two and you'll be recharged for another round at the breweries!

A group of 11 of us took the hike to Pittock Mansion. We had a couple of little ones with us and it took about 1 hour 40 minutes. The trails are well marked and in excellent condition. We took the lightrail to the zoo and started from there. We walked back down to 23rd street from the mansion.

Forest Park in Portland, Oregon is the largest park in a major city in the USA. It has more than 50 miles for hiking and biking trails in this forest. It has some hills, but not too much, and during the spring you get to enjoy seeing the spectacular Trillium flowers. In the summer you can even eat some wild... More

This place was interesting. Getting here we drove through all sorts of residential areas. I don't know if there is another way we were just following the GPS. We did the short hike to the little stone house. We didn't have a lot of time here so not sure what the rest of the park is like but this area... More

Such a treat to have such a nice hiking spot so close to the city. Enjoyed a short hike to the Stone Cabin.

Very foresty, this one. Every person I talk to wishes there was more parking for cars, which is the reason for one star down. For some, it is their go-to cyclocross training grounds. Quite muddy, even sometimes in summer! Awesome. Perhaps has a spot or two for some slack lining adventures. Lots of creaks from the old trees reminds you... More
