Easy trails. Love the Hoyt arboretum

Was almost 2 miles and I would not call it easy, it would be moderate. But gorgeous!

LUSH- like I was in Jurassic Park. Moderate hills/incline. Enough to make this new pnw-er sweat. A guy said “love your jackeeeettttt” to my wife as he ran by so that really pushed this to five stars for me.

Great urban hiking. Good kid-friendly trail; we brought our 7 year old daughter. Diverse variety of trees with signage explaining things. There are a lot of opportunities to extend the hike beyond the listed mileage. Crowded, dogs must be on leash at all times.

the trail looked so beautiful with all the leaves falling and changing colors. it was wet when we went since it was raining on and off. we were the only ones there that day, which I didnt mind because it was nice having it all to yourself. there is a paid parking area but you can also park on the side of the road too. it's a super easy trail and the scenery makes for some amazing pictures.

Amazing Portland “getaway!” Took my pup and she loved exploring and rolling in the leaves. Wandered all around the main trails and then over to the Winter area. Way-finding signs are exceptional, so it’s impossible to lose your way (and easy to wander). Trees will probably be at their peak in the next few weeks. Friendly crowd as well - lots of hellos. Really love this Portland park, especially on a weekday afternoon if you can swing it.

Don’t take the suggested route. So hard to follow. Just pick a trail (spruce, fir, etc) and follow the signs

Easy peasy relaxed hike along established trails. One side are evergreens and the other side deciduous. Beautifully created lookouts and views.
