Wonderful contrast to the city. Kids and adults will love it. The trails are well maintained with very large trees.

Truly a beautiful park! Pick a trail. All offer an escape away from the city that's almost surreal. The path to the stone house is easy enough for beginners and branches off into other hikes for the more adventurous.

If you need solace from the hustle and bustle of Portland, this is the place to do it. There are a ton of trees to wonder at and it can get chilly at night. But it was good to be one with the forest. It...More

Highly recommended for a walk, hike, or run - well-groomed trails, spectacular forest, painful parking.

My wife and I went for a trail run in Forest Park during our visit to Portland over the 4th of July weekend. We found an entry point to the Cannon trail in Germantown, which connected us to the Wildwood Trail for a beautiful out...More

Great place to go for a hike, such easy access from Portland. Plenty of different trails to take, could definitely spend quite a few weekends just exploring all of them. It is dog friendly, just make sure you have it on a leash. There are...More

Our kids train for cross country up here. They run we walk. Wide paths, bikers can be annoying . Not very fun on rainy days as it gets muddy.

Great place to explore - large trees, some hills to climb, various length of trails to hike. You can make this an hour visit or an all day thing!

We took the steep stairs down below the Thurman Street bridge to the trail. It is a paved path until you cross the bridge over Balch creek and enter this enchanted forest. We took the Lower Macleay trail. The conditions are wet in the woods...More

This park is amazing and huge. Many trails to enjoy and the Pittock Mansion to visit. To have such a large park within the city limits is wonderful surprise. Beautiful views!

To be comfortable and not rushed, I would give myself 2 1/2-3 hrs. Assuming the weather is nice, you will want to stop and take some photos along your hike.

If you're from out of town you'll probably appreciate how well Portlanders make space on the trail for runners. I know I do! There is also a Spring and Summer trail series - informal races between 5 and 8 miles with... More
