The basics

Formally established in 1948, Forest Park has been cherished by Portlanders and visitors as a tranquil urban oasis for generations. Home to over 80 miles (130 kilometers) of walking trails, the municipal park is also host to a thriving ecosystem of second-growth forest, hundreds of bird species, and numerous mammals, from bobcats to flying squirrels. It offers up a lovely dose of Pacific Northwest scenery—and best of all, it’s completely accessible from Downtown.

Guided hiking tours offer a thorough introduction to the park (and many of its highlight attractions), while general city sightseeing tours provide a more casual introduction to the area. For another perspective, take to the skies on a helicopter tour.

When to get there

Forest Park is open every day of the year, from early morning until late evening. If you’re a first-time visitor, begin your hike in the morning to take advantage of the daylight and comfortable temperatures. That also gives you the freedom to stay for a longer hike than you’d initially planned.

The Wildwood Trail

Part of Portland’s 40-Mile Loop of walking trails, the Wildwood Trail is the longest in the park, and one of the most popular places to begin exploring. It stretches for upwards of 30 miles (50 kilometers) along the park’s entire length, and also links to Pittock Mansion—one of the city’s most popular heritage buildings.
