My husband and I traveled here from San Diego. We love trail running but are used to dry climate. This was the most beautiful run I've ever done. Brutal and unforgiving though with lots of hills. All worth it though because the scenery is amazing. Definitely recommend for a hike or a daring run.

One of my favorite hikes conveniently located in Portland! Expect to share the trail with others as it's regularly traveled. Great for trail running, too. The views of Portland from the mansion are incredible and it's a lovely spot to relax before headed back down.

The trail was fantastic and well marked. Fairly busy though. We hiked this on a Monday and still a dozen other hikers and runners.

Nice moderate hike from Lower MacLeay Park to Pittock Mansion. It's shaded the whole way, follows a small river 1/2 way up and then heads into tall trees on a well worn path with rare obstacles underfoot. It's popular so there are many others going up/down but not excessive.

An afternoon hike with my family, very pretty and some good exercise, but my kids did get a bit bored because there were no waterfalls, animals, etc.
