It borders a really busy four lane street so it is noisy. There is a short trail that was beautiful and I couldn’t hear the traffic, but it isn’t long enough to get a good walk in.

Most of the trail is underwater right now.

Loved this trail. Steeper than expected, but I found it awesome that there was a little bit of a challenge. I'll definitely do this again. The witch's castle and the audobon society trails are also super close to the trailhead and are worth checking out.

I would give this hike 3.5 stars if I could and describe the trail as Easy to Lightly Moderate (I workout daily but had ACL knee surgery so the hike down was slightly strenuous on the knee). It's somewhat steep and lightly muddy in a few areas. My Garmin claims I climbed 82 floors. The directions from this app took me to a street with beautiful homes so I missed the hidden entrance and wound up on the Leif Erickson trailhead about .5 mile north. The entrance is off the street and leads down steep stairs to public restrooms, parking lot, and the Wildwood trailhead. The views of Portland and Mt. Hood at the mansion are worthy of the hike. I saw the biggest woodpecker ever feasting on a tree. That was pretty much the highlight of my hike.

Super short but pretty. Parts still muddy and slippery.

Visiting family in the area and am amazed at how close this beautiful place is to the inner city. Great hike!

Perfect for a walk. No dogs allowed, which is great! Park closes @ 4pm. Trails are easy and more of a walk than a hike. My girls ran, walked, enjoyed flowers, birds, trees, bamboo, and the river. Good for families with kids We will be back.

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!

Great trail if you want to get out but don’t feel like driving out of the Portland area. It is muddy in some parts so make sure to have proper footwear.

This is a great botanical garden with historical significance in the SE Portland area.

I’m surprised at the number of negative reviews based on visitors inaccurate expectations/AllTrails information, neither of which have anything to do with the Leach Botanical Gardens.

Great staff, volunteers and setting. My favorite time to visit is spring.

I wish they allowed them, but I understand why they don’t, seeing as many people do not bother to clean up after their dogs.

perfect for relaxing and getting out of the city noise

nice i like a swamp zone. saw some birds, they seemed to have some kind of club going on in the bushes.

This is a massive construction site at the moment: 7/27/2017. It doesn't look accessible from the road.

We spend an afternoon walking and enjoying the beautify of this place.

It's a nice even path. It does have roots and things that might trip you up if you aren't careful. But good for young and old alike. It's more of a walk than I hike, but still nice.

Much of the trail is flooded now.

Not at all what I expected. It's a large garden around a historical home with many paths throughout. Also, the information on this site/app is incorrect. Dogs are not allowed in the garden unless they're service animals. Which I would love to have known before I drove myself and my excited pup there for a much needed decompression hike on election day. Super frustrating. I probably won't return. Definitely not a fan of all these so-called "hiking trails" around Portland where you can't even bring dogs.

the directions on here are stupid. gotta walk through neighborhoods. to walk from where it leads you said it would be 30 minutes

Great trail for the family.

Very beautiful and they're currently working on upgrades. Squirrels, bird and rabbits! Plant life is apparent and fish. For Pokemon Go fans it has five Pokestops and a gym. The gazebo has brand new wood and seating for under twenty people. It is a fun and calming walk and great escape from work. Finally there are two perfectly good baseball fields with dugouts and scoreboards!

This is an easy, family-friendly loop around the Audobon Bird Sanctuary in/near Forest Park. Early spring is a fine time to visit, though the trail will be muddy in spots. The staff at the sanctuary are very friendly and happy to introduce you to several of their rescue birds which are now resident. Entry is free, though they welcome donations.

It's a nice little walk when everything is in bloom. I only go there when the flowers are out.
