Nice easy stroll for a bird watching and general wildlife watching.

Fairly easy, very pretty. Alder loop was very muddy and not as pretty as the other loops so not really worth navigating the mud.

In a residential neighborhood with limited parking in a cul de sac which is flanked by homes. Had difficulty turning around with all the cars. Found that if I took a left on 183rd instead of the right, there is a much quieter cut de sac (without the number of homes and cars) to enter from.

Love this trail but as the weather is improving so is the traffic. It's easy enough my 6 year old can do it with ease yet we still feel like we're getting a workout while enjoying a nicely maintained path. The restrooms are also nicely maintained. Definitely recommend if you're looking for a basic trail.

Nice and easy hike through the snow. Didn’t need snowshoes or spikes.

This 19th century urban park in Portland, Oregon is very popular. It features a peak with nice views and several reservoirs for the city’s water supply. Lots of people and dogs on well used trails.

Nice gravel trail around entire lake. State Park Discover Pass needed.

Very pretty hike. Didn't need snow shoes or spikes.

Breathtaking views yesterday 02/10/18! Great trail for beginner snowshoeing. Plenty of snow for skiing or snowshoeing!

Well maintained trail with beautiful views of the lake from time to time. Saw about 15 people during the walk on a weekday afternoon.

Went today and was absolutely breathtaking! The snow was really coming down, as a snow storm was happening. Lots of fresh powder & only people out there. Had to park and walk just over a mile to trail head but the walk was pretty too. If you’re in the area DO THIS! Easy, flat, beautiful. Snowshoes are a must, deep deep snow.

Took this hike with my 4 and 7-year-old as their first snowshoe hike. They loved it! We didn’t really need snowshoes when we went (mid-December) as the trail was packed down good but they still loved it. The trail is even better on a clear day. The fog ceiling was very low and we couldn’t see much, at the end of the hike we made it back to the frontside of the pond and the fog had lifted. We loved this hike!

Good place to spend the day off. A little walking here, chill out over there. Picknic area is cool, take something to cook with ya!

Cool little marsh-like hike; right near a residential neighborhood but you really wouldn’t know once you get out there. Tons of critters; slugs, snails, and salamanders. Kids had a great time - it’s all flat so no need to worry about hills or climbing.

Great snowshoe trip for first timers. Easy peasy

A pleasant day, nobody but myself on the trail. The previously muddy trail was frozen so no problem dealing with mud. Very pretty and enjoyed the solitude.

Easy walking/jogging trail around a pretty lake. Nice park with picnic areas, fishing and play area for the kids.

Nice hike. Went in late October and it was a little muddy but other than that in good condition. Options for longer or shorter hikes due to different trails. Picnic tables at start of hikes. Good for kids/walking dogs.

Good good for 3 and above kids

nice easy hike for a six year old and his momma

We followed most of a route from Laura Foster’s “Portland Hill Walks” which includes very interesting residential areas as well as the park itself.

This trail is closed for renovation as of 10/10/17

Super easy, wide trail, great for kids and people of all ages. Shady, lush, brings you close to the waterfall, which isn't really very large or "fally" but pretty nonetheless. The trail to it is most of the enjoyment of this small hike. Recommend!

I wouldn't go out of your way to hike this trail, especially if you are looking for a view. However, it is good for biking or going on a run. The path is for the most part flat with a few steep up hills. There is also a place for frisbee golf a little bit before the entrance of the trail.

Easy hike with a stunning view!

I’m from Southern California here for a conference this week and I loved this trail! Loved all the green and space! My run map is a little all over the place but I had fun! Definitely will try and come back this week and explore more. Good workout for this novice trail runner. Well maintained and marked trails.
