Some trails are not super roller skate friendly, but this one is. I took it across the 205 bridge and had someone pick me up on the other side. It is really a very nice path for wheels of any kind. I love watching the birds and river on one side and planes taking off and landing on the other.

I head here when short on time and needing a quick run with a little bit of climb. This loop is intended to be run clockwise though I often see people going in the opposite direction. My only complaint is that part of this trail is actually just paved path or road, boo. But all in all it’s decent for being urban. On a clear day there are views of the waterfront/downtown and even with the crowds, it’s usually still peaceful and easy to maneuver.

This 19th century urban park in Portland, Oregon is very popular. It features a peak with nice views and several reservoirs for the city’s water supply. Lots of people and dogs on well used trails.

Beautiful scenery and amazing views of Mt. Hood and downtown Portland.

Dry and no mud today. Some cool birds in the swamp.

great little loop. only saw a few other people (nice weekday in February). a bit sloppy, so definitely bring some old towels for your dog

A great trail to let the pooch run around. Not many people.

3 bald eagles and an osprey!

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.

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

Fun with good views and not too many ppl.

Nice walk along the river. TRAFFIC IS SO LOUD ON THE SE SIDE! Parking costs $1 per hour, cash or card, park at the Vera Katz SE Esplanade on SE Water and Hawthorne. You could extend your walk down to OMSI on the SE side and go over the Tillicum Bridge. But the walk from Tillicum to Hawthorne on the west side isn’t that great.

very nice trail for cycling.

Good good for 3 and above kids

Not what I was use to. This is definitely an inner city “nature” hike. Over half of the view was of graffiti on old abandoned looking buildings.

Not a bad trail. Pretty easy, good for beginners.

Limited parking at the gate. Follow fire roads 13, 12, and 15, and return via Wildwood Trail. Well marked.

We followed most of a route from Laura Foster’s “Portland Hill Walks” which includes very interesting residential areas as well as the park itself.

Magical! I wish it were closer to the water, though. Also the amount of party trash and evidence of/presence of vagrants was unsettling. I wish the loop didn’t include the bike path, and I wish you could get back to the parking lot without totally retracing. (Plus, that hill is killer when you’re tired.)

I loved the trail!

I’m from Southern California here for a conference this week and I loved this trail! Loved all the green and space! My run map is a little all over the place but I had fun! Definitely will try and come back this week and explore more. Good workout for this novice trail runner. Well maintained and marked trails.

Beautiful, peaceful hike that I'd definitely do again

Easy hike, did it with a 60 year old smoker. She had a rough time but completed it!
