This path follows the most popular and beautiful trails in Washington Park to connect you with all the major sites and attractions within the area. This is a great walk for the family as it includes a zoo and very cool Japanese Garden area. The Wildwood Trail is one of the best trails in all of Washington Park and you will travel over most of it. There are a lot of trails that intersect the track so you can explore around the area as well.

It was ok, I'd definitely call it a mostly easy trail with a couple short steep sections. biggest problem was the stretch right off the memorial, which has lots of criss crossing trails that were confusing enough that I had to check my map a dozen times. Not knowing the names of the component trails was a problem until I got to where I can stay on Wildwood for a long time. Maybe would have been more logical going counter clockwise. At any rate, it's a good hike that feels mostly secluded despite being urban and you can detour to a little viewing area on Wildwood.

The short segment that runs along Johnson Creek (2.4-2.5 mile mark on the elevation map) is closed due to a landslide. Detour via Redwood Trail.

I give this five stars because it is a beautiful forest in the middle of a major city. Once you're on the trail, it is easy to forget that downtown is only a couple miles away. Peaceful and quiet.

This was very cool next to the Pittock mansion. easy to find and easy, ample free parking. a very misty spooky descent into the mossy forest very cool. :)

This is one of the only hikes where I know the exact date of when I went. It's very easy, and is a good place to walk your dog. This is one of thew only trails in the City that doesn't get extremely crowded, so it's pretty enjoyable. Just wish it was a bit longer. It only takes an hour to complete, so you don't have to be prepared to do this trail.

Beautiful wooded hiking near the center of the city. We had our engagement pictures taken here.

very pretty misty, mossy woodland hike with you surrounded with tall trees. canopy is pretty thick so you don't get too much sun. trail was very well marked and maintained. Right near portland city so easy to get too. Ample free parking.

It's forest, dirt roads, paved roads. You will see people but there is a nice view up at the top.

Washington Park is one of the best examples of urban parks I can imagine. As you come from the entrance via SW St. Claire and make your way up to the ample theater you know the architects of the park spared no expense in the planning of this masterpiece. There is a small park next to SW Marconi that is in bloom in early summer that worth a look. The Rose Garden, tennis courts, archery range, play ground and Japanese gardens give everyone something to do. The park ends where my favorite park begins The Hoyt Arboretum.
