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.

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

Very hilly and nice views

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!

beautiful view. uphill, downhill, and flat terrain. easy to get to if you're in Portland. trail, stair, or road options. very dog friendly. usually occupied by a lot of other people. not a secluded area at all. great for all levels.

Great hike in the city.

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

Enjoyed this hike. Peaceful and beautiful

Nicely maintained trail. Beautiful view at the top.

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.

We only completed the loop portion of this trail. Quite beautiful trail itself with only glimpses of views. There were lots of trail runners and other hikers.

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

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.

I run this trail several times a week year round in combination with adjacent loops. One of the Crown Jewels in Portland’s Park System. Try connecting this to the Council Crest Park loop if you have time for a true “I heart PDX” workout!

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.

Was a bit Confusing but we will definitely be going Because there are many things to do around that area. We will be going back tomorrow to explore all the other areas we didn't get to explore today.

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!

nice trail.

Beautiful trail. I had accidentally parked halfway along the trail, so I didn’t get to see the view but it was still great. Very heavy traffic though, if you’re an experienced walker be prepared to be constantly going around families with children running around and teens blasting music from speakers.

Easy hike, just be ready to be hiking in the outskirts of the city.

My family and I did the 'Little Prairie Loop' which was a nice, scenic loop.

I carried my three month old the entire trail while my girlfriend ran down the trail and back to me and the baby continuously.

The trail is well maintained and is virtually all gravel. There's slight elevation change, but nothing strenuous.

Views of the Tualatin/Sherwood area atop the trail was nice and the wooded areas were cooler in temp and beautiful.

Great little walk for the entire family.
