  • Sarah picked us up at our hotel, then drove us to Forest Park. Along the way, she gave us a brief history of Forest Park. We did a five mile hike on easy to moderate trails in Forest Park. Absolutely beautiful! We loved it. We were glad we had Sarah as our guide, as just trying to figure out where the trail heads are, where to park, and which trails to hike would have been frustrating for us non-locals. It is an actual forest with over 80 miles of trails but have no parking lots and no visitors' center. Sarah is a wealth of information regarding the park and the city of Portland and just a delightful person.

  • Sarah was so friendly and so informative that made the whole day special. She is full of energy and life. We hiked the forest and it was so much fun. It was one of my favorite days in Portland. Sarah loves Portland and she will inform you with a lot of information in a very fun and friendly way. Thanks Sarah for the great hike. Oh I almost forgot to say that she takes your pictures and emails them to you. She is a great photographer as well....What a bonus that was!!!!! It was a joy and a privlidge to have her as my tour guide.
