Very hilly and nice views

I took my walking group here on a very hot day, and had a delightful, easy, shady 3.8 mile walk. wish there were more trails like it!

Fun great little place for a family stroll or a nice run. Nicely shaded too so it stays cool throughout most of the trails..
We started out early so it wasn't too many people yet. Parking lot was full by the time we were done after 9am on a Saturday.

This is a very nice walk for little legged or wheel bound kiddos as well as adults who are a little more unstable on their feet. THPRD has done a very good job trying to make you feel like you're in nature EXCEPT for the constant sounds of trains/max, busses, cars, etc. The trails are well maintained and clearly marked. The nature center and bathrooms are in good shape as well. I would recommend it to someone needing a quick walk/jog through the trees or an elderly person or person with young children mostly due to the paved trails and little to no incline... However, I don't think we will be returning as it is a bit too easy and close to city noise for my 8, 5, and 2yo preference as well as mine.

Lots of road walking, but there are lots of blackberries to munch on in late July so that made it nice

My family and I did the 'Little Prairie Loop' which was a nice, scenic loop.

I carried my three month old the entire trail while my girlfriend ran down the trail and back to me and the baby continuously.

The trail is well maintained and is virtually all gravel. There's slight elevation change, but nothing strenuous.

Views of the Tualatin/Sherwood area atop the trail was nice and the wooded areas were cooler in temp and beautiful.

Great little walk for the entire family.

Paved paths, it’s nice. Can take long walks or short ones. It’s nice

Easy for a everyday walk

Mostly paved. Good walk.

This is a great place for wildflowers including the endangered Pale Larkspur. Beautiful hills, meadows, forests and birdwatching.

Beautiful park! Lots of wildflowers blooming now.

Simple and relaxing.

Walked entire loop with wife and two young daughters (3 & 5 yr) we loved it. We saw lots of different wildlife, we had a great time and there is a community center at the beginning/end of trail. Very neat stuff inside!

Super boring trail. Not a lot to see! You can’t really drown out the cars that are close by either. Won’t be back

My first time here.. I didn’t know it was no dogs.. (oops) But I definitely heard it from just about everyone which was nice and annoying. We still did the whole thing and it was beautiful. So many pretty flowers. Great family spot!

Great place for a nature walk or a nice run with some hills.

Went out to the park for the first time. Nice place for a stroll and for some quietness. A lot of people there but once we got our didn’t seem people all that much. We did a 2 mile loop but different options.

Nice loop for training for a race. If you get there right at dawn you can avoid the crowds. Toilets and water available.

wonderful hike. Loved the variety of flora and fauna as well as the variety of trails. "caution" Poison Oak!

The trail is more of a wide gravel path sidewalk.
Although for good reason, given the poison oak to be aware of here, the pasture valley is beautiful with the hills in the background.
Great starter playground for the kids while parents prepare.

Clean restrooms, can't stress that enough, godliness.

Great little hike with awesome views. Easy to do with kids, gravel trail. Well maintained.

On nice days this trail is quite popular, but not bad overall. Lots of birds and other critters, including a lot of bugs. There are many different paths you can take and plenty of spots you can stop to rest or simply take in the scenery. As it is an easy walk, it’s a great trail to bring the kids to!

Cooper mountain is beautiful! There’s plenty of different trails and paths you can venture. Some areas enclosed with trees and some spots are wide open and you can view the cityscape and sky. Taking a bike on the bath seemed like it would be super fun! However, walking was just as great!

I would 10 out of 10 recommend!

Ok if you want a quick walk through nature without leaving the city. The loop took me barely any time. Pretty, well-kept area but probably good for kids as there’s nearly zero incline and the path is exceptionally maintained (almost all boardwalk or paved). Not good if you want an actual trail without driving all the way to Portland or the coast.

My new favorite, go-to spot! Great variety of wild life, water features and paved/dirt/boardwalk trails. The big 3.4 mile loop takes about an hour at a quick pace. Note that some of the smaller, short cut trails have been decommissioned.

I love running big fir trail. Gorgeous scenery.

I run here a few times a week to train for random races. I love this park.

we could see deers, such an easy and beautiful walk! some parts can get muddy, so bring proper shoes!

Easy and clean trail. A few non-paved loops but good for kids. No pets allowed.
