Located only minutes from downtown Portland is Oregon's only state park within a major metropolitan area. Every day, visitors come to hike or stroll the nature trails through the verdant ravine between Boones Ferry Road and Terwilliger Boulevard in southwest Portland. Cyclists of all ages bike along the paved trail on the park's eastern edge, stopping along the way to admire a trillium. Some people visit Tryon Creek just to sit in the Glenn L. Jackson shelter and listen to the chatter of the jays and squirrels. Others, especially people with mobility-related disabilities, come to enjoy the peaceful setting of the fully-accessible Trillium Trail. Tryon Creek is one of the only streams in the metro area with a run of steelhead trout. The Friends of Tryon Creek State Park operate a nature store, summer youth day camps, school tours, guided nature walks and special events. They can be reached at (503) 636-4398. There's so much to see and enjoy at the 645-acre park, one visit isn't enough!

This hike is great for all ages! I take my kids on this one all the time and they love it! It has many small trails and is beautiful!! If you like hiking/nature walks this one is a must!

A wonderful park with huge trees and tons of wildlife. One of my favorites.

Great place to get into nature without having to leave the city.

I used to work at Tryon Creek State Park. It's good for trail runners and anyone that wants to get into nature for a little bit from the city.
