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!

Tyron Creek was one of my favorites to go to. It has so many different trails you can go down and even tho it is Feb it was very enjoyable.

Great trail if you’re looking for a bit of a longer hike, it gives you time to appreciate the beauty of the forest. I recommend familiarizing your self with the trail names as it can be a bit confusing on which way to travel to stay on trail

Nice little hike. Busy on weekends, but generally pretty peaceful on weekdays.

Thursday, 1/17/19

Arrived at 12:30pm and a school bus was leaving (thankfully). Overall, it was crowded. My dog and I ran into 5 other dogs and 10-15 people altogether. Everyone was very friendly, but the trail is narrow and steep in lots of locations, so be mindful of Fido and the leash rule. Some muddiness, as to be expected. One bridge was out and atop the

little muddy in places but nice....creek views were nice

Nothing that great but for being in West Linn it's a nice area for toddlers & the retirement.
No views, bridges were damaged & some trails were closed off for repairs.
I did enjoy that the nature center offered patches & stickers of the other State Parks.
Haven't seen that in any other ones.
Definitely just one to mark off the list of just being there once before, doubtful I'll be returning.

It was so nice to get a solo hike in after work. Leisurely photography stroll, good for the soul.

Nice trail with some decent incline here and there. Plenty of options if you want to switch it up.

I loved this location! Lots of trails to choose from here. Adorable bridges to cross over the creek. Some moderate hills to climb, but not difficult at all.

For being within 20 minutes of downtown Portland, this is a really lovely area. A friend and I went around Thanksgiving time, and trails were not too slippery or muddy. We went counter-clockwise starting from the horse parking area, and found there to be quite a bit of uphill waking that might be challenging for children or some seniors. Most of the people we encountered were going in the opposite direction so maybe it’s easier to start that way. Either way, it was a nice quick hike and it’s a convenient and beautiful forest.

great hike, areas of elevation enough to give you a workout but not too difficult! gorgeous, ample parking

Pros: Great nature center, lots of trail options, education along the way.

Cons: Extremely high traffic, especially during program times, close proximity to parking and road in places.

Grew up walking on these trails! Peaceful and beautiful

It's my first time and I love it. will come back!

Have done this and other trails in the park. Shady all the way. Parts can be muddy and slippery in the rainy season. Usually not very crowded considering it’s in a city.

Easy hikes available for every age group

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!

It was a beautiful place but way to many people for my liking. I go out to get away from people and the hustle and bustle of the city and if that’s what you’re looking for this isn’t it.

There really isn’t a waterfall. It was cool to see the suspension bridge. If you’re going definitely go on the Lewis and Clark trail.

Cute little park. Nicely maintained trails. Great for a quick hike in the city.

Beautiful, accessible; the perfect walk in the woods.

Awesome close in trails from Portland. Beautiful scenery and not crowded during the week. Lots of little bridges and moderate inclines. Took about 1.25 hours to do this loop.
