I went to this park for some of the main attractions (with's house and pittock mansion) but the hike itself was worth going to all on its own. There are so many options to make the hike as short or long as you want. I...More

We were shocked on how large this park was, we drove all around it and then did a walk at Macleay Park to the witches castle.

A gorgeous, lush and green place to hike. Trails are wide and well maintained. The scenery is stunning. What a jewel for the city of Portland!

Such a cool urban forest! We had a couple hours to spend on a rainy day, so we explored the southeastern part of Forest Park. We stopped by the Audubon Society of Portland, which has a gift shop and some neat taxidermy animal displays with...More

I spent about 4 hours walking around the trails and taking pictures. Trails are nice and there are signs and maps along the way to let you know were you’re going. Things look absolutely stunning in the spring and the trees block out the rain...More

Completed the Redwood trail in half and hour or so. Wife was in heels and the kids were not too into it. There was a big bag of Doritos from Costco in the car at the end of trip so they were definitely into that.

Forest Park is a fine place to hike, losing yourself in the wilderness next to the City. The wind in the trees, and the sounds of the natural world everywhere.

A great place to hike just minutes from downtown. Wildwood and dogwood trails are great for beginners. We use the alltrails phone app to navigate the twisty, intersecting trails and have loved going out for walks with the dog on most weekends.
