This is such a hidden gem. Lovely trail for a family hike. Not too busy, even on weekends.

Love it here, so many different hiking trials, depending how much you want to walk. A lot of scenery and small waterfalls for he kids to see. I have two kids and they loved it!!

love it! light traffic and a lot to see.

There are dozens of possible routes to try out in Tryon. Today my route most resembles the fingery weirdness of this loop. My goal was to fill in some of the inner paths that I missed my last visit when I chose a wider perimeter loop.

After a year in Spokane exploring all the trails, even those inside the city limits, I decided I would do the same back in the Portland area. It's funny how you can live in a place your whole life and not bother to explore things practically in your backyard. Tryon Creek Natural Area is a pleasant place to visit when driving an hour out of town to a more remote trailhead isn't an option. I started from the south-most entrance on Andrews Road so I could hike the biggest loop possible. One down, many to go!

Great series of easy to almost moderate tails. Serene settings in just a few minutes from the parking lot. There's a gift shop and interpretive center with some programming for children.

Get area to run, walk, bike, horseback ride. Well groomed trails and very scenic.

A lot of trails here, went to the visitors center to get it right. Nice hike for family and kids.

2 miles loop are good . We have fun today

Easy with some elevation gain and loss. Lots of trails but trail remains in the same drainage basin so it is pretty hard to stay lost for long.

Easy hike with multiple options for trails. We did about a 2 mike loop.

Was a very nice hike. Well maintained trails.

Nice, easy walk with pretty forest views.

Great hike, but no waterfall!

Beautiful setting and easy to get to.

Was a great hike with a bit of a challenge I'm not a normal hiker but I would salmon shape. Had to avoid horse poop on some of the trails that was about the only downside

Great park with which to escape the city. As a trail run this loop is a favorite of mine for variety and challenge, offering switchbacks, both steep and gentle inclines, flat stretches, foot bridges, and safe footing. Tryon offers consistent shade in summer, with refreshing creek bottoms to visit, and a rain forest feel in the winter. Great place for birding and wildlife viewing too. Owls are very active here in fall and winter. Trimllium blooms from white to dark purple, and shades in between here. Friends of Tryon have been pulling ivy too. Wonderful place to take kids to explore nature and your neighbors. I have seen people walking exotic pets from mini-horses, pot bellied pods, and a caracal! This loop is a perfect after work run or weekend saunter and the Boones Ferry Access lots are not often full.

Lots of fun options to make your own route. 7 miles today.

This tends to be my go to Sunday trail with my dogs. However the other dog owners on this trail are no as easy going as say, Wildwood dog hikers so the hyper sensitivity can be annoying. Its fairly well travels and yes you can get turned around pretty easy without this app.

Quiet little hike. After 9 am, it gets busy.

Easy hike, well maintained and even if you get lost it’s easy to end up at the parking lot! Lots of nice bridges and creeks. Perfect quick little 2 mile hike

Good trail nice views. Depending upon which trail you take, it’s relatively flat. High bridge and beaver bridge trails have some steep slopes.
Nice walking trails. Good parking.

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.

Good for kids!

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.
