  • Spent two hours standing outside in the cold taking pictures and we barely moved around. The view was breathtaking and although it was cold and we didn't get to see the rest of the Arboretum it was a good trip overall. I do wish that they kept the path clear of snow as we slipped around quite a bit walking up
  • This is my favorite go to place for a morning hike. There as many options for how long/intense you want to go for. Generally the closer you are to the parking lot the busier it is, also the easier the paths are to navigate. It is a very wide reaching park and you can at one point cross burnside to make the intense switchback hike to the Pittock Mansion if you are so inclined. Many of the trees are labeled and bikes are prohibited so you will find walkers/hikers, and lots of dog walkers.
  • Absolutely beautiful. The hiking here is awesome and the trails are really well marked! Lots of options no matter your skill level.
  • This is such a great, quiet place in the middle of the city. There are lots of trails, but nothing too strenuous. All of the different types of trees make the arboretum unique. I loved the redwood section.
  • I love this amazing place! Tranquil, diversity and a great platform for exercise.

Where to stay in Portland

For easy foot access to Portland's best shopping, dining, and entertainment, stay in or around the downtown area, connected to the rest of the city by light rail. This compact and busy part of Portland contains the highest concentration of hotel rooms in the city, allowing you to explore options ranging from boutique properties to big chains. Thanks to Portland's convenient transportation system, you can also choose a less expensive motel or bed and breakfast in one of the outlying neighborhoods, and still be within minutes of most major tourist attractions.
