We had a good time doing this trail in the snow. There are multiple spots for a great view. The trail was well maintained.

Not a bad little hike but it is not one of my favorites. I think it is just because I like hikes that are in more rural areas so maybe that's the reason why I gave this a lower rating.

Simple trail in the Forest Park part of Portland. Love walking through the trees and ferns you'll forget there's a bustling city below you. No views of the city unless you continue to another trail.

nice, easy to moderate hike that is easy to get to during the week. Will hike again!

Quick and easy little 5 miler, easy steady up for the first half quick down for the back half. Lots of traffic (runners and bikers) at the start and end, but relatively low traffic for a nice Saturday in the middle. I'd do it again if I needed to get an easy hike in.

Nice different varieties of cherry, go either in March when they are flowering, or go in summer when the cherries are ripe. Trail winds in and out of the forest. Nice inner city hike.
