Take a ride or a walk around this beautiful city park which holds 3 different reservoirs for Portland Although there is no swimming in the reservoirs for obvious reasons, this park has plenty of other things to offer the whole family including picnic areas, a dog park, monuments, and public art, and even volleyball and tennis areas.

I head here when short on time and needing a quick run with a little bit of climb. This loop is intended to be run clockwise though I often see people going in the opposite direction. My only complaint is that part of this trail is actually just paved path or road, boo. But all in all it’s decent for being urban. On a clear day there are views of the waterfront/downtown and even with the crowds, it’s usually still peaceful and easy to maneuver.

This 19th century urban park in Portland, Oregon is very popular. It features a peak with nice views and several reservoirs for the city’s water supply. Lots of people and dogs on well used trails.

We followed most of a route from Laura Foster’s “Portland Hill Walks” which includes very interesting residential areas as well as the park itself.

I’m from Southern California here for a conference this week and I loved this trail! Loved all the green and space! My run map is a little all over the place but I had fun! Definitely will try and come back this week and explore more. Good workout for this novice trail runner. Well maintained and marked trails.

Decent trail for a leisurely stroll or running. Great views of downtown. Worth stopping at park, if visiting PDX. Kid friendly.

I'd call it more of a stroll than a hike. The blue trail really tries hard to squeeze in 3 miles in the park by sneaking in a lot of switchbacks. But it's a nice day and there are a couple good city views.

Short loop with forest like features and an excellent view of Portland. Very accessible for hikers and bikers. Good place to sit and think.

This is a pretty trail to hike, especially early in the morning. Some areas have decent vistas but there isn't one high peak where you'll see everything.

Went during a weekday to catch the sunset. Moderately trafficked. Very beautiful view. I definitely recommend it. Don't forget bug spray as there are mosquitoes! Free parking.

One of my favorite places in the city. Great place to take a dog and you can make it as easy or difficult as you want with the variety of trails and stairs. Gorgeous views!

This is a beautiful hike but super tough on my lungs. People with asthma be warned. The dogs love this one, but keep them on leash. However, there is a great off leash area at the beginning, or end, depending on how you like to do things. :)
