Quiet little hike. After 9 am, it gets busy.

My girlfriend and I went here last weekend and it was a really enjoyable hike. A little muddy so I would recommend wearing shoes that you don’t mind washing or hiking boots but the views were beautiful.

Nice spot, a little less trafficked, good for dogs and kids. The parking is good too.

It’s nice not having to park along the main road in this area of forest park. The trail is a little less traveled than some and the other hikers seemed a little more chill. Would recommend.

Beautiful area but the trails aren’t marked well and the loop itself is hard to hike because there are so many different trails.

Easy walk to take the dog on and I love people watching on the waterfront but there's much better places in the area to go to.

Easy, dog friendly hike

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.

Great fully paved trail to take your dogs on walks.

Great trail for a workday workout. Great city views. Loud on Eastside but that wS expected

Great hike close to a beautiful area of Portland!

The trail is closed due to a landslide. It still takes you up to the mansion for amazing views! You just cannot continue from there.

Nice walk, lovely water and very small ups and downs. Enjoyed it! Will be back! Was glad I had the AllTrails app, it’s easy to take a wrong turn here. GPS tracking on the trail was EXTREMELY helpful. Good signal so no worries about that folks!!

Great trail. A little muddy at some points during rainy season.

Fun with good views and not too many ppl.

Good but busy, of course.

Some muddy sections this time of year, so definitely wear boots. i loved hopping stones or balancing across fallen trees or 6x6 chunks of lumber for a handful of creek and draw crossings, but those may make this otherwise moderate trail a little more daunting for some. Never saw any waterfall.

Nice loop through the forest and with pretty views of the mountains.
