Love this area. Shaded, not a flat trail in all areas but plenty. Has some gentle hills to work on the heart rate. Beautiful place to put in a few miles.

Enjoyed the hike.

Great local hike, No dogs allowed in this park

Easy hikes available for every age group

Great hike when you're itching to go out, but don't have time to leave the city. Head on up see the famous view of Portland from Council Crest.

great for being an in city local hike!

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

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!

I found this place thanks to this app. best place ever. so beautiful.

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

Enjoyed this hike. Peaceful and beautiful

Nicely maintained trail. Beautiful view at the top.

Great place to train that is conveniently located to west side communities in the Portland area. If you are hiking, keep an ear out for mountain bikers. Early morning is the best time to hike - the lake is still quiet with mostly fisherman and a few kayakers. Later in the day the tranquility is broken by jet skies and party boats. I have done this route twice in the last month and my Garmin showed 14.5 miles.

Great hike, although the amount of horse crap that is everywhere is pretty gross. Just be careful. Its literally everywhere.

This is the only place where people can take their dogs to run around off leash for endless acres surrounded by beautiful rivers and woodlands. The trail route listed above is only a suggestion of the endless way you can configure the maze of trails. It even includes crossing the channel, Which can only be done by fully swimming, which I would only suggest in the summer when it is warm and the waters are low, or by boat.
The only people not rating this five stars is a singular person, Sam M. Sam, we hear you. You think this should be a birdwatching sanctuary and you don’t like dogs. I wish I could take my dog to Oxbow or Dabney, but I can’t, not even on-leash, those are reserved for people like you. Please enjoy.

I took my walking group here on a very hot day, and had a delightful, easy, shady 3.8 mile walk. wish there were more trails like it!

Great city park. Good for trail running.

nice and well marked simple and relaxing break from the city

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

one way small trails part of the way with a couple cross streets. overall wonderful with good incline!

My favorite place on earth. I grew up literally next door and spend many hours here everyday for years. This place is my happy place. I know every trail and corner. Everyone should go here at least once. Also the other two places across the lake and ghost lake (fallen leaf lake)

Love this hike so much. It so secluded and a beautiful walk. Could spend all day here. The signs are a bit confusing at first but I do love it. The mill is always a great see.

We loved bringing our dogs here to enjoy this beautiful spot. I loved being nestled in all the nature surrounding me. We saw a coyote, it was near the trail by the farm but ran into the farm land when we came by. It didn’t run into the woods, just stood watching us. We saw tons of birds. Very nice place!

Great place to take kids, see some horses and listen to the birds, see the beautiful trees and not too difficult. Beautiful place to use your imagination.

Fun great little place for a family stroll or a nice run. Nicely shaded too so it stays cool throughout most of the trails..
We started out early so it wasn't too many people yet. Parking lot was full by the time we were done after 9am on a Saturday.

This is a very nice walk for little legged or wheel bound kiddos as well as adults who are a little more unstable on their feet. THPRD has done a very good job trying to make you feel like you're in nature EXCEPT for the constant sounds of trains/max, busses, cars, etc. The trails are well maintained and clearly marked. The nature center and bathrooms are in good shape as well. I would recommend it to someone needing a quick walk/jog through the trees or an elderly person or person with young children mostly due to the paved trails and little to no incline... However, I don't think we will be returning as it is a bit too easy and close to city noise for my 8, 5, and 2yo preference as well as mine.
