This was the first park I visited when I moved to town and it is a magical little gem tucked into the middle of the bustling sprawl of suburban Portland. On a hot day the temp drops noticeably as you descend into the ravine along the little creek. On several occasions I’ve been greeted by a very inquisitive owl.

Beautiful trails in the middle of the city. Each intersection is marked, and each path has a name. I saw a family with kids enjoying their time, otherwise I was alone.

I often walk these trails and it makes for a solid walk out in nature. You often feel like you have the place to yourself. Lots of shade on a hot day, which is nice. Trails can get muddy and slugs abound (I even saw a snake once!). Still, the lush green, natural feel, stream at the bottom with little bridges make for a very pleasant experience. Biggest downside is that the trails has lots of little spokes off the central loop, so it’s hard to cover all the park unless you do out-and-backs.
