Flight home got cancelled and was looking for something to do. Walked a 2 hr loop trail and checked out the redwoods. Definitely worth doing, this is a quintessential walk in the woods. If you like trees you will be in heaven. Trails are well...More

The Redwoods are my favorite! The blossoming trees (cherry blossoms, dogwoods, magnolias, and others) in the spring are a close second.

We did the 1 hour loop which was perfect for our group of three. So many trees, and they're so tall (compared to the east coast)! It's also free which is great.

Take your choice of route through the Arboretum - 30 mins, to 2 hours and you can take several walks and enjoy the cool breeze in the glinting shade of the trees. The trees are marked so that you can remember their names - there...More

Beautiful little hike and you end up in an area with about 50 redwoods. They have a deck with benches and you enjoy the area and relax after your mini-hike.

We stumbled upon the arboretum after visiting the Japanese garden. I began to regret wearing dressier shoes and a dress as we adventured the Wildwood Trailhead but it was manageable and completely worth it. It looks us straight to Pittock Mansion. For a Saturday afternoon...More

Partial to redwoods and sequoia, sit for a few minutes on the "deck" to think your thoughts. It's quiet and spitting distance from downtown Portland and right next door to high end homes and real estate. The Hoyt Arboretum is far more than just redwoods....More
