This is an incredibly beautiful forest to walk around in. If you have the time you can easily spend the whole day there. Lots of undulation so if that’s a difficulty walking need to be considerate of… Full review by Andrew T

To help set expectations, Forest Park, is mainly literally a forest with a large number of hiking trails in it. The longest trail, the Wildwood trail is 30 miles long in one direction, so you could spend days covering all of the trails. In my opinion, if I only had one day and 3 hours to hike the trails, I would try to park near the Portland Audubon Society at the Macleay Park parking area and hike the Wildwood trail from there to Hoyt Arboretum and back. Along the way you would enjoy the spectacular views at Pittock Mansion. On a clear day, from Pittock Mansion you can see downtown Portland and 4 8000ft and higher mountains (they are really volcano)
