Located only minutes from downtown Portland is Oregon's only state park within a major metropolitan area. Every day, visitors come to hike or stroll the nature trails through the verdant ravine between Boones Ferry Road and Terwilliger Boulevard in southwest Portland. Cyclists of all ages bike along the paved trail on the park's eastern edge, stopping along the way to admire a trillium. Some people visit Tryon Creek just to sit in the Glenn L. Jackson shelter and listen to the chatter of the jays and squirrels. Others, especially people with mobility-related disabilities, come to enjoy the peaceful setting of the fully-accessible Trillium Trail. Tryon Creek is one of the only streams in the metro area with a run of steelhead trout. The Friends of Tryon Creek State Park operate a nature store, summer youth day camps, school tours, guided nature walks and special events. They can be reached at (503) 636-4398. There's so much to see and enjoy at the 645-acre park, one visit isn't enough!

Hiked 12/10/17. This is a Oregon State Park and is located in the Portland area. It is very popular year-round and there are many trails that make up the circulation network within the park boundaries. These provide a multitude of traveling options based on hiking time allotted. There are at least 5 different entry points around the exterior trail loop making it easy to enter the park from the area closest to your departure point.

Beautiful little loop. Very quiet on a damp November Sunday.

Wonderful fall day, we spent 10/29 here from 9-11am for a work training. Parking was free but full by 8:45am. Something to consider when heading out.

Beautiful, easy, hike with different trail options. Some of the inclines can be sketchy if the ground is really muddy. I was glad I brought my trekking pole for stability.

I am grossly out of shape & I chose the Obie Bridge trail which has several inclines. I only made it to the bridge then turned around & went back. So sad. I very much enjoyed myself though. Good way to set goals & get in shape!!!! There are many trails to choose from. I might actually ask someone next time which trail is better for a fat out of shape middle aged woman who is just starting on her long road to health. lol
