More difficult than easy, but just what I needed! My dog and I both loved it!!

6/3/20 - Beautiful park with amazing views of downtown and the mountains, but review is specifically for the curated trail. There are too many unmarked paths that intersect to make navigating very difficult, especially if the GPS isn't on point like I experienced. There was also a point that it instructed to switch from the main road to a walking trail on a shortcut that didn't exist, causing us to turn around. Would have had a better experience just exploring the park without the app.

Very nice and dry and not crowded

A large part of this hike looks perfectly arranged, as if every tree is groomed by Japanese bonsai masters. I don't remember noticing that before. Every tree is interesting. Lots to see. Tons of cool benches too. And by the way, Tryon Creek State Park is no longer closed as of a few weeks ago. The governor is opening things up in stages, and that includes quite a few state parks.

good trail. 4 star only because it's in the city and you cannot escape the sound of traffic. dog friend. I recommend making the extra push to council crest summit for the best view of Portland that you can get. makes the trail 8.5 miles with 1700ish feet of elevation gain. I gave 4 instead of 3 because unlike a lot of city trails bicycles are not allowed.

Tryon Creek State Park is no longer closed due to COVID. Third of four short hikes I did after work. Moral of the story: an hour or two is well enough time to go out and hike somewhere, and you don't have to drive hours out of town (well, depending on where live, I suppose).

The second part of this hike toward Boones Ferry is the more interesting, surprisingly. Slightly less people venture down the trail since it's an exit trail and not part of a loop. It has some nice scenery. A bit of elevation gain, but not too bad. Tryon Creek is no longer closed due to COVID (unless the governor changes her mind again later).

Hiked this loop in a counter-clockwise direction in early June. The app alerted me that part of the Wildwood Trail about 3 miles in was closed for trail maintenance, and that was accurate. The detour follows Cleator>Leif Ericsson>Koenig to meet back up with Wildwood. The detour seemed to be approximately the same distance as the closed part. Parts of Koenig and Firelane 4 are very overgrown. Happy to report much of the mud has begun to dry up. The pieces on the Maple Trail were particularly beautiful.

My favorite trail to bust out a moderate 5-6 mile hike regularly. At the top you have sprawling views of meadows and mountain peaks. As you continue down you can pop off on many trails that lead you into the forest, from here you can control how long your hike will be because you can continue on or use a different trails to head out... I'd stay away from the bike paths, even though you'll likely bump into a biker anyway, but its never been an issue for me. In the spring the critters begin crawling. Ive seen caterpillars (so many!!), snakes, coyotes, eagles, many birds, and every now an again you encounter a horse to pat if their human allows!

While the app said closed, and it was Sunday, today it was open. We even passed a horse going the other wau

Barely any parking. Confusing.

Great quick stroll with my daughter and pup. Busy and a little narrow for social distancing. There was also a little muddy in some areas.

gpod trail overall. paved biked path that leads to downtown, tadpole pond, even has some offshoot trails where you can be isolated from others for a little bit.

Fun first visit for a short hike and some photography. Several birds and turtles, light foot traffic. A couple trails bear off the main trail that are pretty to scope out. A few power lines diminish the overall quality a bit, but otherwise a unique spot I will visit again.

Good trail, lots of pedestrians even in quarantine so must ride pretty slow especially on south side of river.

Great quick inner day hike, numerous routes available depending how long want to go for.

Audubon trails are short and beautiful loops. Out and back from Audubon to “Witch’s House,” beautiful as well. Downhill to the house, then uphill back.

Easy place to take a leisurely stroll! Had a lot of mini trails so it was easy to have some time away from other people. Only rated it a 4/5 because it wasn’t very challenging at all for a hike.

Hiked this out-and-back in late May. Beautiful weather and really lightly trafficked. Still a fair amount of heavy mud in certain spots. Going back up Trillium trail at the end is tough but overall very moderate. I did the 6 and a half miles in about 2 hours.

Great trail my fiancée and I did it in a little over an hour. Good incline less trafficked then some of Powell’s buttes more known trails. I personally really enjoyed it will come back again to get a better finish time! Most of the trail is dirt so trail shoes would be ideal!
