Great hike for hot days since there is a lot of shade. A few people during the hike but most people have their masks on during encounters

Pretty easy my 2 year old made it most of the way. I thought hillside was a view point but it’s just a bunch of houses.

Narrow at times but still kid friendly and doable for a 4 year old!

Very pretty view and a great short workout for newbie hikers! You gain quite a bit of elevation in a short amount of time but nothing too hard. I would recommend to anyone visiting this city and wanting to experience nature!

Super steep in the beginning but levels out I went about 2.3 miles. View at the top was super pretty, there’s a decent amount of people if you’re looking to hike alone

Not bad for a city trail I suppose, but no desire to do it again. So many trails in this area intersect that I don't know what trail I actually took. All I know is that I walked around the general area for a solid two hours, not that minded because its fairly pretty. The view from Pittock Mansion is, as they say, the best view of Portland. Thanks to covid the low emissions made Mt. Hood quite visible, which was a treat. The trail had a quite a few people on it for a weekday but that might also be due to the covid situation. I imagine this place is swarming on the weekends.

Hiked 3.17.20, busy, well marked-basically two loops involved. Gorgeous views from the mansion, which is closed, and a little snow around the parking lot!

This was a great hike with relatively gradual uphill stretches, but the mud made it difficult to manage. I was definitely worried about losing my footing at a couple points. I will definitely try this one again once things dry up a little bit-- not bad for winter in Oregon.

Muddy... bring extra shoes, towels to wipe dogs off, poles to help come down.

An easy, highly trafficked, trail in Forrest Park. We enjoyed a beautiful autumn hike on a dry, sunny, Portland day. The trail is well maintained and sinage is frequent & easy to follow. This route does involve about a half mile of vertical incline which gets you about 550 feet of elevation gain as you approach Pittock Mansion. There are benches along the way to take a rest as needed. For much of the year, the area around Pittock Mansion is windy & chilly, so bring extra layers. A must do for any avid Portland urban hiker and visitor alike.

awesome hike this beautiful Friday morning. not a soul on the trail itself, until we got to the top at Pittock Mansion. there, a group of runners congregated and joined us to greet the sunrise. all in all, a pleasant hike. would definitely recommend to all age levels.

Nice hike with husband, Godson and his girlfriend. Enjoyable on a great day! Would rate as a moderate hike, pleasant woods, not too scenic. Lots of flowers in season at the mansion.

Beautiful hike. I would rate it moderate. Path was well defined and a little rocky in a few spots. Good hike if you don't have a lot of time. Worth the time.

A nice easy trail. A bit of elevation here and there but nothing too extreme. A little slippery and rocky for running the day after rain.

beautiful trail! sad that the ruins have been defaced. I would say easy-moderate easier when it's dry I would think.

Be careful! The trail was dangerously muddy and slick today. We hiked up it and did okay despite the boot-wrecking mud, but on the way down two people in our party slipped and fell less than a minute into the climb down and since we were carrying babies on our backs, we decided to abandon plans and one person hiked down to get the car while the rest of us waited at the mansion. It did snow two days ago so be mindful of what the weather has been recently. Other than that... the trail is quite busy. Lots of folks. Lots of dogs. And follow the road for a long while. But the views at the top are unbeatable especially on a clear day. And the trail closer to the mansion has beautiful pristine forest that was breathtaking in the diffused sunlight. Parking was kinda crazy... and this was the off season; yikes. So, all in all, a hike I will do again mainly because of the "destination" at the top, but will certainly shoot to park somewhere else and go when I know the trail conditions are safer.
