Over three bridges and through the woods, this trail through the lush urban preserve is just minutes away from downtown Portland. This gem of a park offers various trails, including this loop which allows one to enjoy a several mile trail through the moss covered Pacific Northwest rainforest. Because of the ample free parking and great nature center, this park is very popular among locals for exercise, trail running, and nature walks.

Great park with which to escape the city. As a trail run this loop is a favorite of mine for variety and challenge, offering switchbacks, both steep and gentle inclines, flat stretches, foot bridges, and safe footing. Tryon offers consistent shade in summer, with refreshing creek bottoms to visit, and a rain forest feel in the winter. Great place for birding and wildlife viewing too. Owls are very active here in fall and winter. Trimllium blooms from white to dark purple, and shades in between here. Friends of Tryon have been pulling ivy too. Wonderful place to take kids to explore nature and your neighbors. I have seen people walking exotic pets from mini-horses, pot bellied pods, and a caracal! This loop is a perfect after work run or weekend saunter and the Boones Ferry Access lots are not often full.
