Great evening hike for hot summer days as most of the trail is shaded.

Great shady trail with light morning traffic. Dog friendly on a leash. Lots of trail runners and it is narrow in spots.

first time on trail. went opposite way and didn’t see any north horse trail signs until almost back at trailhead, then saw many! Was on an (intermittent) trail run and had to check map a lot. trail was almost empty (noon on a thursday), all shaded, lots of little bridges, lots of ups and downs but not too steep. sometimes narrow. about 70 degrees and cloudy. bushes sometimes poking out onto trail. mostly packed dirt with some roots and steps. beautiful and would recommend. ran alongside my pup who had to run behind me sometimes.

3.6 miles. Pleasant on a warm summer day because it is all shaded. Easy to moderate, depending on your pace. Nice hike to take a dog on - not too strenuous or long for the 4-legged type.

Actually 4.6 miles, not 3.3. Great hike. Dry hardpack, well-maintained. Not too crowded despite urban locale. Multiple sets of stairs FYI.

Hard to tell what trail to follow to complete this loop while running, it’s a combo of multiple trails. Had to keep looking at my phone (this app) to tell if I was following the right one.

Located in my favorite park to hike this trail gives you a good view of all the park has to offer. Perks include crossing many bridges including the terry ryan suspension bridge.

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

After a year in Spokane exploring all the trails, even those inside the city limits, I decided I would do the same back in the Portland area. It's funny how you can live in a place your whole life and not bother to explore things practically in your backyard. Tryon Creek Natural Area is a pleasant place to visit when driving an hour out of town to a more remote trailhead isn't an option. I started from the south-most entrance on Andrews Road so I could hike the biggest loop possible. One down, many to go!

Was a great hike with a bit of a challenge I'm not a normal hiker but I would salmon shape. Had to avoid horse poop on some of the trails that was about the only downside
