Facilities

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.

Parking at the trailhead is free and is large, but during weekends in the summer can be challenging due to the park's popularity. The Nature Center offers public bathrooms and nature educational displays for all to enjoy.

It was great, so many different splits and trails connecting and all in a loop, as well as great balance of climbs, downhills and straights highly recommend

Nearly a perimeter hike that showcases some of the park's best angles. The trees are enchanting, especially when backlit by the low evening sun. The hot weather sapped some of my normal hiking energy even though pretty much the entire hike is in the shade. Though the parking lot was full, the park didn't feel crowded at all. Signs are posted indicating that face coverings are required on the trails, but the park is open.

Ton of options! Very versatile and that makes it fun. More altitude than I anticipated, but was great work out!

The trails by the Nature Center were packed when I went at 5:30pm today, but once I got out to the west there were less people & hiking became much more pleasant.

Great trail. Getting there at 7am during summer months was a great idea. It was super spacious, enough elevation if you’re a beginner trail walker/runner. They have tons of scenic areas and a few bridges. Signs and map were accurately stated. Due to the relaxing nature of this trail, you can lose track of time and feel like you just started when almost an hour or two had past. I recommend it. NOT stroller friendly. Good for kids if they can walk on their own pretty stable, without needed help.

Great fun trail, we saw an owl and a heron and heard much more wildlife as we were walking. Lots of smaller trails that give flexibility to length of the hike.

The trailhead parking lot and the street shoulder around the corner gets full fast, but people are constantly coming and going so getting there real early isn't a must. The trails were a little muddy, moderately busy with mostly masked families with dogs, shady, and well kept. Easy nature walk right in the city!

The trail was really fun! It was VERY muddy when we went and there was a couple of places that had standing water on the trail. There are a ton of steep parts so make sure you wear shoes with really good traction. NOT stroller friendly. Not even a little bit. Unless you want the workout of a lifetime do not bring a stroller!

Went a couple of months ago. Nice walk that is not strenuous at all. Fun that you can make your own paths and zig-zag through the whole park.

Fairly easy trail. Well maintained. Good for walking or running. Dog friendly. The scenery at Tryon Creek is pretty uniform across the park, but beautiful if you love the forest. There are also many other trails nearby. Tryon Creek is currently closed due to COVID.

Lots of cool little bridges to cross. Don't skip the Lewis and Clark loop! That's where the coolest bridge of all is. It's a green suspension bridge! Great local hike!!!

The pups and I Kinda meandered and did our own thing at Tryon creek, really nice at first but I took a wrong turn and ended up walking up the path that hugs Terwilliger at the end. Much less pleasant but it’s my fault for refusing to follow a map.
