Perfection in a park. Miles upon miles to explore be it bike, hike, or run. Towering green trees as far as you can see intermixed with amazing city views. I just love being here when the clouds are thick and the rain is trickling down.
This was an amazing hike, we went with the Boy Scout Troop 870. Some parks of the hike was kind of steep but was well worth it. Another amazing site was the two crashed abandoned cars. I think it was a crash from back in the 70's. The cars were definitely from then.
Largest urban park in the US! Forest Park’s jewel is the Wildwood Trail marked by blue diamonds. All other trails branch from that. Good for year-round hiking on well-maintained trails through old-growth forest. Highly recommend for a quick escape from the city to a mossy wonderland.
A must do in the Portland area. It's the best way to get a true taste of the Pacific Northwest and it's natural beauty if you can't make it too far outside of the city. I definitely recommend the Maple Trail in the fall or anytime year round.
I don’t know if this needs a review. Forest Park is amazing. I’m so happy we have a place like this so close to the city
