We ended up stopping here to get out of stand still traffic during rush hour. It was a highlight of our trip in Portland. The trails were muddy but not difficult to walk on. We were so close to congestion but once you are on the trails it is as if you entered a place of serenity.

We hiked trails within the park as part of the 4T (Trail, Tram, Trolley and Train) experience. The trail portion of 4T was approximately 4 miles in length and was an easy to moderate hike (some of it was uphill). There are several trail alternatives other than what we experienced as part of the 4T. It is hard to imagine... More

I've hiked here about 50 times, do it most every Saturday. Can bring your dog, but be able to control it! Different wildflowers at many times of year. Quiet. Can be some steep hikes. Wish the maps were more current, accurate, wish they'd add a new trail or two. Very easy to get to amidst urban environment. A great escape.

This is a great place to hike on a warm day as there is plenty of tree cover along most of the trail to keep the sun off you. It is very hilly so if that is not what you like, then not a place you want to hike. There are trails of varying lengths though so you can make... More

I am a biology teacher who lives in the desert. So for vacation, I wanted to visit a completely different biome, the Northwest Coniferous Forest. Hiking in this park, verified that the Pacific Northwest is the most beautiful biome in my eyes. HIKING - My husband and I hiked this trail, and we are not in good shape, but it... More

The Marquam Trail is part of the 4T Trail (train, trail, tram, & trolley). You get to see a lot of Portland- wear good walking shoes & bring some water. It was a good hike with plenty of people & dogs along the way.

Better signage would go a long way to making the trails easy to find and easy to hike. After endless attempts to find the park we finally did. We did a two hour hike and it was just what we were looking for -beautiful scenery and great exercise!

There are several hiking trails to explore. Also, there is a small amphitheater with a terrific mosaic on the walls of the seating. The mosaic features flora and fauna indigenous to the park, and was created by volunteers. It is beautiful and inspiring, and harmonizes with its surroundings. It's a bit hard to find; it's right at the hairpin turn... More

Set among its trees and trails, Marquam Nature Park near OSHU features a remarkable small ampitheater created with tiles and glazed pottery. The art work is a community project, and worth a pilgrimage to enjoy its embodied spirit, and the woods and creatures around it. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-Nx6801EqEEs/Ur_S00t8C0I/AAAAAAAArjo/7ui6oeXC3UY/s640/DSCN1823.jpg
