My daughter and I did the 2.5 miles from Lower Macleay up to Pittock mansion. It's hard to believe that a park this green and dense exists right in downtown Portland. There were some steep climbs and the persistent uphill really tested our legs. It's...More

The Wildwood is a wonderful 30-mile urban trail. I have hiked its length annually (in short stretches). It is relatively secluded, but yet popular. Except for the last 3 miles, it is possible to hike sections in loops which saves out-and-back hikes. Although the last...More

Limited free parking and pay parking are the only negatives of this treasure for nature lovers. Dog (on leash) friendly. Your dog will whine and yelp every time you pass near this dog walking heaven. After a rain the little creeks make natural music and...More

My husband and I hiked from the trailhead at the south end of McClelly Park/Trail and did the 4-ish miles to Pittock Mansion and back. It was just the right amount of challenging and enjoyable for me. I live in Indiana, so the hills were...More

Even on a crowded day, it is still a lovely hike in Forest Park. Many other trails shoot off this one. Don't leave anything valuable in your car though. The area is known for break ins. A lot of homeless hang out here, out of...More

Wildwood Trail (actually 30 miles trail distance) is always pleasant to run or hike, regardless of weather or the time of day. Mud and fallen trees add to the excitement during the winter months--good trail shoes will make a world of difference in the rainy...More

A 5000 acre wooded park just a couple of miles from downtown is very special indeed. Trails run throughout the park for various users. A few closer in ones are over used, but for good reason as they are spectacular especially along Balch Creek. There...More
