Forest Park, Portland Reviews
Hands down one of my favorite parks. Its extremely large, tons of options, and if you enjoy a little bit of spooky it has a historic haunted house with a creepy story to follow behind it. This park has amazing views, lots of creeks, and small waterfalls, but just be sure you bring the right hiking gear along.
I love Forest Park. I climb, hike, and run the trails all the time. I always go out there and enjoy walking around, I love the witches house, so historical. They should clean it out, renovate it, and convert it into a nice little cafe where you can relax and refill water bottles with ice cold water. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Trails always filled with tourists and/or summer camps slash school field trips no matter what time you go. So go and enjoy it! Quickest easiest way to get outdoors in the NW without having to drive to far. Take a moment to check out events in this area! I have been going to forest park trails for 5 years now and didn't know they had regular events until recently.
What a gem. Running, walking, hiking in a deep forest right in town! It's not isolated, you will see many others, but it's very peaceful with the feel of being miles out of town. If you walk for about two hours you get to the tip where a Mansion Museum with a great view is waiting for you. One of the nicest park in Portland
I heard this described as a “fairyland.” After hiking here I definitely agree. There are a lot of beautiful forests in Portland but this one is definitely one of the most spectacular. Amazing to be so close to the city and yet feel like you’re in another world, with actual quiet! Gentle trails too, easy for young kids to hike. This is a great spot to escape any day of the week, parking will be more tricky on weekends however.
