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

Above the zoo there are some amazing trails to hike around with many different levels of difficulty and distance. Beautiful forest ., great for bird watching. Great even on a rainy day as trees make a nice canopy, no umbrella necessary

Very peaceful, serene evening walk on a Sunday evening. Saw maybe 2 other people walking. Trails are easy on the feet and not too steep of an incline. So many different trees to look at!

For travelers from out-of-state (like we were), the Hoyt Arboretum was a great showcase of the forestry that Oregon has to offer. There are several paths to take, and the trees - tall pines and larches, cedars, redwoods, and others - seemed to envelop us...More

To find a place that's about a five-minute drive from NW Portland, where one can walk daily and feel transported to a non-urban environment is a treasure indeed. My husband and I (and our dogs) love, love, love this place. There are plenty of trails...More
