  • This area of town is one of the most wonderful to visit in Portland. The air is filled with pine smell and the numerous trails around make this natural space exceptionally fun and peaceful. You can enjoy a picnic with your family while enjoying the great views, meditate by one of the enormous trees, or come to hike for a while—a great workout! It is just amazing how close you are to the city but at times as you walk around you can’t even notice it.
  • Beautiful tall trees. Good variety of trees and plants. We saw a bunny and squirrels the day we went. Nice spots to rest and take in the nature. It was quiet the day we went but might get crowded on weekends and school holidays.
