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!

Took my dog and 12 year old son to this beautiful state park. No fee required. Multiple trail options. Hiked 2.5 miles - all trails clearly marked. Was muddy but no issues. Will definitely come back!

Trails are wet/muddy but overall good condition.

Honestly was such a nice hike. It was short but effective. It was a lot of up hill, some cool bridges, a little confusing but fun! Very dog friendly as well!

Came at 7am on a Saturday in the winter and was already so busy I couldn’t even find parking and left.

I enjoyed this hike. They also have multiple trails for different distances. The lady inside highlights the trail you would like to conquer. I did use the paper map and AllTrails gps to verify where i was and to see if i wanted to do an additional trail. I did get a little confused, but it’s not hard to get back on track. I will do it again! Muddy, but not drastic. Shoes had mud on them and some on my pants. I been in muddier places.

This was a nice moderate trail. Some of the paths aren't very well marked, so I recommend having the GPS feature on AllTrails available if you don't want to miss your turn. We missed a couple turns on this path and will have to go again to do it properly. :-P As previous reviewers recommended, we got the map from the information center. The lady there was very helpful and suggested starting the loop going North. The mud wasn't terrible. We never lost our footing, but it was definitely on our shoes and pants.

My mom has knee problems so we took this loop cause it was nice and flat. Perfect for us!

We traversed this trail on Christmas day. it was a rather gloomy day but the gift of the Northwest and all its beauty is never disappointing, no matter the weather. This trail was slightly difficult to follow but the trails map kept us on course. if you do this after significant rainfall then be prepared with proper shoes. After the initial walk around the park area you head into the woods and climb just a bit. It is up and down from there. We enjoyed it. A day pass is required or purchase a yearly pass for Or. state parks online ahead of time.

Enjoyed for a quick getaway from the city a great trail and tryon is amazing to get lost in its beauty.

Was a bit tough for my 3.5 year old with the up & down hills. &a tad challenging for a fella that doesn't exercise often. *Easy city trail.

Awesome trail that gets very muddy after rain. Gorgeous scenery.

this is one of my favorite areas because of how much parking is available so you are always guaranteed a spot. it's a nice break from the city and it's the perfect place to take a stroll. it's very well maintained and some times there can be a lot of people but since it's so big you're usually by yourself for a good part.

Love it! Enough ups and downs to get a work out. Weekends are crowded. Weekdays are best!

A little bit confusing to know what the three bridges are but it’s best to get a map in the nature center. Great easy path and low traffic at this time of year.

Trail was super busy but very friendly. Lots of adorable dogs! :):) I really loves that the trails intertwine so nicely. Very easy to create your own distance and level of difficulty. I took a novice hiker along and we both had a great time.

Well maintained trails with appropriate signage. Definitely pick up a map or look at digital map often since there are so many intertwining trails in this park. Excellent hike for kids, lots of birds and bridge crossings to make it interesting.
