Have done this and other trails in the park. Shady all the way. Parts can be muddy and slippery in the rainy season. Usually not very crowded considering it’s in a city.

Great. Except for tree size, it has the same cathedral feel as the Redwoods. Stay home. I don't wanna share.

Prepare to get wet! Fantastic hike along and in a creek. Beautiful scenery as you hike through a canyon, climb over a huge log jam and wade through the water to reach a cascading waterfall at the end of your hike. Highly recommend!

Easy hikes available for every age group

Well maintained trail in the heart of PDX. I prefer early as the trail is open at 5 AM. Nice and quiet then.

If anything, this is more of a nature walk than a hike, but well worth it. If you do the round trip, it's about 6 miles, which is a decent calorie burner even without any noticeable elevation gain. But if you were coming here, it wouldn't be for that, it'd be for the wonderful walk or bike ride on a paved trail that parallels the path of Salmon Creek. While you're not directly alongside the river at all times, it's always within earshot and accessed by walking a few yards down one of the dozens of side trails that offshoot from the main trail. You'll walk through forest, field and everything in between. Great way and place to relax amongst the elements. I'll be back.

beautiful...Lots of trails.

Grew up hiking these trails as a kid in elementary school on field trips. A good easy hike for all ages! The suspension bridge is always fun too!

Great hike in the city.

The Road Is Only Open To State Troopers, Game and WildLife Patrolmen, and Residents That Live On That Road. Anyone Caught Trying To Hike Said Trails Are Fined. This Is All Due To The Bad Fire They Had Last Year And Several Told Me They Aren't Sure When It Should Be Open.

Love this trail, perfect hiking place for a hot day.

Enjoyed this hike. Peaceful and beautiful

Nice shading, good to see some wildlife. It is short, going around the entire thing is about 2 miles. Trails get super narrow. I came around 2:00pm on a Saturday and there was little to no one around, so very peaceful.

Nicely maintained trail. Beautiful view at the top.

Saw ducks, blue herons, cranes, hawks, several varieties of small birds, deer and nutria. The four hundred year old oaks are amazing.

Really great for a city trail. Good for trail running.

Beautifully kept trail with the chance for some great vistas of the gorge along the way (a rarity with the tree cover on most trails!)
Definitely very steep but the trail is even and mostly packed dirt. Great to get behind horsetail falls! On the western side of the bridge that crosses Oneonta at the top you can scramble down into the Riverbed and come right up to the edge of the falls into the Oneonta Gorge (which, incidentally is the most beautiful hike in the area if you can beat the crowds)

Nice evening with the family. We all made it down and back :-)

its s bit confusing but will definitely be going back to explore everything else Around the area.

Is the trail open ? I see a lot of recent reviews. We fly into Portland the 13th next month and this is number 1 on our list.

so beautiful

Cute little park. Nicely maintained trails. Great for a quick hike in the city.

Beautiful, accessible; the perfect walk in the woods.

Good city hike. Wanted to stay close to city and get a good hike in, and this did the trick! The views from Pitock Mansion were great as well!

Went last year in a long overdue rating. Definitely go if it opens again!

It was beautiful by the playground area& everything to the right of it (coming down from parked car).
bridges are well maintained, pathways with signs, railing but then you walk past the play area&the mini stone bridge-
it's as if they stopped giving a damn.
especially after crossing the road.
For my first visit here I wish they had trail markers instead of a bunch of trails that go every other way.

Okay but it seems like this park is more for appearance rather than an 'urban nature walk'.
No Forest Park.

Was out with horse group 6/23/18; walked my horse across bridge and it is so slick that neither of us could stand up mid-span. I was knocked off the bridge onto the rocks below. Be very careful whether you are hiking or bike riding, but horses, stay off the bridge! The tie area is across the bridge but don't do it, tie to the trees just before you get to the bridge and "skate" across. We were able to get my mare back across, yes she fell on the bridge, by putting dirt and gravel on it for traction. This bridge and the one around the corner, needs fall protection like the others have
