Trails level surfaces and well maintained so little risk of tripping when looking up at trees.

The hike was pretty nice, but the signs weren’t very helpful, and we were expecting to see at least some flowers from the reviews, but unfortunately didn’t see any. It was a pretty leisurely hike, however and the different trees with their labels was definitely a nice addition. All around worth the experience.

Many options in the arboretum trail system and connects to the Wildwood Trail for many miles of hiking. Best in spring for flowers, but then can be muddy. Fall colors also can be spectacular. Parking can be a problem on a nice day.

I run this trail several times a week year round in combination with adjacent loops. One of the Crown Jewels in Portland’s Park System. Try connecting this to the Council Crest Park loop if you have time for a true “I heart PDX” workout!

Always a great park for a walk or hike. Parking can get scarce on busy warm weekend days.

Beautiful. Peaceful. Easy directions and signs for all trail options throughout. Also extra cool labels on some trees. Excited to come back and try another trail option.

Walked the mile loop around to look at the redwood and sequoia trees while I was vacationing in the area. It was so peaceful and the trees are so majestic and beautiful. Very different from the east coast! It was an easy walking trail that takes you through the highlights of the park and should be accessible to people of all abilities.

Lots of different trails. Beautiful! We parked at the visitors center (costs money) took Magnolia to the Japanese Garden / Rose Garden, and magnolia --> beech back up.

Nice, easy, not too busy. Serene, good for recharging on nature when you only have a few hours. Beautiful!

Walkers are respectful of one another and the surroundings. The area is gorgeous. The ground underfoot is kind. We walk the Arboretum trails every time we visit PDX.

This is a lovely place to visit no matter what time of year. They have hundreds of different trees from around the world. It's so relaxing and peaceful. I got a ton of great pics here. The trails are easy and its shady most of the time. Loved it!

absolutely beautiful! However it'd very easy to get lost! so make sure you really pay attention to the map and the trail names! It was loads of fun seeing the variety of trees!

Nice easy hike. Lots of looping trails. Connects to the Wildwood trail if you want to pump up the mileage.
