First time on this trail. Some ups and downs but not bad. Little muddy in a few spots. Nice photo op. Well worth the trip.

I'm here in mid March...beautiful!

Great city trail in Portland’s acclaimed Forest Park. The lower trail follows a stream. The upper trail leads to a lovely view of the city and Mt. Hood beyond from the gardens of the elegant Pittock Mansion. Water bowl for doggies and the ticket office for the indoor tour of Pittock.

Easy hike with multiple options for trails. We did about a 2 mike loop.

Great trail! unfortunately went in August so the falls was just a trickle. So if you're hiking for the falls, you'll be disappointed! They are very small in comparison to the beauties further north on Hwy. 138!

The lookout has been condemned due to vandalism

Beautiful hike with mild very gradual elevation gain and stunning waterfall at the end! There is a snowmobile trail that also leads to the falls, so be sure you find the trail through the woods off to the side of the snowmobile trail so you can enjoy the beautiful forest. The snowshoeing or cross country skiing trail is a little hard to find from the very start, but is easily visible from the cabin just a few feet up the snowmobile trail. The forest trail is also well marked with blue diamonds on the trail throughout the entirety. Highly recommend also checking out the lower falls viewpoint only 1/4 mile down in addition to upper level lookout. Of note, you need a Sno Park pass to park for this hike which we didn’t find listed anywhere else!

Excellent hike with stunning views on a clear day! Tough incline heading up, but well worth the views. Snowshoed in mid- March

Beautiful place!

Great hike anytime. Both falls are beautiful.

One of my favorite short hikes. The falls and pool are beauriful. Be sure to go when the runoff is at its peak.

Beautiful hike - waterfalls throughout did not disappoint

Quaint & fun little trail

Sucks as a "hike". It is a very large parking lot which is free to park and has a trail that takes 2 minutes to get to the beach. It is no where close to a mile long. However you can walk as far as you want on the beach.

great hike and view. Even though it rained, still had a great view!

This is a large suburban nature park with a 620’ foot peak in outer Southeast Portland. It is also home to an underground reservoir of drinking water for the city. There are 9 miles of well maintained trails through meadows and forests that provide something for everyone: paved wheelchair accessible trails from the nature center to the high point of Powell Butte, plus plenty of gravel and dirt trails for dog walkers, bird watchers, mountain bikers and horseback riders. The park planners also managed to make it seem isolated from the city surrounding it.

Amazing. Moderate in effort, track is in great shape. Slight mud in lower spots. I was actually quite impressed with how dry it was. Slight hills, but all great footing. Good for kids, maybe not the little ones (6 and under?) Parking and access was super easy.

You’ll reach Pittock Mansion at the top - so fun to explore as well as bathroom access. Go do this!

Hreay trail. We met the director of Land Trust and learned a lot about the area.

Easy hike with some gorgeous views along Oregon’s coastline. The trail isn’t marked well but it’s pretty self explanatory. We took the road back down to Sunset from Cape Arago due to time constraints but it was still almost 8 Miles. We saw lots of marine life as well as some panoramic vistas.

Great place to walk the dog and get some exercise. Beautiful on a sunny day but Thursday there was a rainbow across the little valley and I did not have my phone to take a picture! Trails are still muddy in the shade.

Pretty dull trail. Not to say it isn’t beautiful, it’s just that there are way better hikes with less people in the area. This would be a great hike for a young family with a running baby stroller. Lots of people and smooth paths

Easy hike, and very beautiful. Went yesterday and got there at 6am, only saw a small group of people as we got back to our car. I recommend going early to beat the crowd. Quite a bit of snow still on the ground, but I managed to go through easily with a pair of nikes.

Great hike overall. The vistas were awesome. Started with the Misery Trail first then came down on the backside through Mesa Verde Trail and followed along the River Trail to finish off the hike.

Have done this hike many times and enjoyed it each time! A very fun short hike with a wonderful view!

Beautiful terrain various from dry to lush. I would say this is light moderate.

Beautiful easy hike with lush rivers and waterfalls. Takes approx. 35 minutes to make the loop. Some trails turn into streams and back to trails. Can be a little confusing to stick on the trail but it doesn't matter that much, it's not a large area to get lost in. Good for parents and kids.

Beautiful trail, today it was a quiet and peaceful day, almost no other people arround. We only met some fishermen, and a bunch of teenagers enjoying nature within their tents.

This place is great for a quick hike in town and during the spring time! Amazing views of our rogue valley!

Great trail, I wouldn't go as far to say it's "Moderate". It wasn't a difficult hike. nice scenery and once I got up to council crest for the first time, the views were great I soaked them up for a couple of hours before I decided to hike back down.
