It was definitely a city hike, but it was fun. I would say it was an easy hike.

I loved this trail. I hiked it a few times. Lots of beautiful trees and flowers.

Good for a simple stroll with my dog but there are not enough restrooms. Good for walking, running and biking. I went early so the trail was pretty empty. Not strenuous but nice enough.

Pretty muddy, and difficult to navigate sometimes, but the river was beautiful!

We followed a meandering creek that just took us away...

Pretty in spring. Follows a creek for the first section. It was pretty crowded in the late afternoon, but it was nice to see people out having fun. There are multiple trails that connect with this one, so you can extend your trip if you want. Interesting little building part way in that you can explore.

Muddy this time of year, but a nice trail. Fun little bridges. There are paper maps at the trailhead and I was able to extend this trip quite a bit. There are several trails that connect to this one. Not too crowded. Occasional urban camper; no one bothered me.

I loved this trail today. A little muddy in spots but overall very well maintained. The elevation change is no joke and the view from the top is lovely. Trillium was in bloom everywhere which was an added bonus!

The trails are easy walking and the birds are abundant. Great place for photos and taking in nature.

Always enjoy this trail. Parking can be tough later in the day. Nice for walking and talking with friends. Beautiful.

Today I went 2.5 miles out and back from the starting point and really enjoyed the trail. It was really muddy at some points (which I was really looking forward to testing my new boots through). Looking forward to going further next time or completing the full loop.

Great city trail in Portland’s acclaimed Forest Park. The lower trail follows a stream. The upper trail leads to a lovely view of the city and Mt. Hood beyond from the gardens of the elegant Pittock Mansion. Water bowl for doggies and the ticket office for the indoor tour of Pittock.

I haven't hiked the whole 30 miles of it but this is a great trail because there are so many other options to branch off of and cool places to see.

Great trail, I wouldn't go as far to say it's "Moderate". It wasn't a difficult hike. nice scenery and once I got up to council crest for the first time, the views were great I soaked them up for a couple of hours before I decided to hike back down.

Pretty easy hike, great little stream. when you take the turn up to Pittock Mansion be prepared for the incline. I've hiked this trail two times now. The first time I wasn't in the best shape so it was a nice burn. The second time I was in better shape so it wasn't as bad, but I powered up it and was out of breath by the time I got to the top because I was hiking up pretty quickly.

Always a great park for a walk or hike. Parking can get scarce on busy warm weekend days.

Started the Wildwood Trail off of SW Fischer Lane. Also hit the Redwood and Oak trail. Did not go through the whole 27 mile loop of Wildwood but all trails we hit north of the Visitor Center was very enjoyable. Our starting point of the Wildwood was intensely green and vegetated. Oak trail not so much but for a sunny day in Portland, with very limited run ins with other hikers it was an enjoyable outing. Far more of a decent walk than what I would consider a "hike".

I thought this was a great hike! So fun for the puppers and I. Beautiful scenery and very peaceful.

The trail itself was ok... nothing to right home about. The view from Council Crest was beautiful, but pretty crowded!

This convenient, but heavily used, trail in the West Hills near downtown Portland leads to the iconic Council Crest Peak. On a clear day there are great views not only of the city, but also Mt. Hood, Mt. Saint Helens and Mt. Adams.

Great stroll in the forest, and located right in the city. There is a creek running through part of it and an old mossy stone building to check out.

If you only have time for one hike in PDX, do Upper Mcleay to Pittock mansion and pack a lunch for when you get to the top.

1st run in a couple years... defiantly a challenge little slick on the back but well worth it..

20 minutes from my front door, great trail for training

Beautiful. Peaceful. Easy directions and signs for all trail options throughout. Also extra cool labels on some trees. Excited to come back and try another trail option.

It’s a pretty spot but not well marked. There is so many trail heads it’s not clear where you’re suppose to go. We also sought this one out for the ‘waterfall’ but it’s more like a creek going downhill. Great for kids and pets it would seem, not much for a direct hike.

Thought I would love it, but it’s chock-full of ups and downs, and not just the trails. You get kicked out onto a road at least a half-dozen times. The lake has many inlets which are lovely but also defy your expectations and progress. A number of sections of the trail needed repair, but plenty of signage. The scenery is beautiful and mutable. Not many other people, but the omnipresent road violates the stillness.
My rating might have been slightly higher if I had hiked rather than ran.
I might go back in the summer on a hot day, but would only do part of it.
Very muddy in January.
