  • We came here expecting a greenhouse or some gardens on level land. Instead, it's a series of hiking trails on hilly terrain through forests. They have a wonderful variety of species here, especially e...  read more »

  • An amazing feature of Portland and a true gem of the pacific northwest. I have hiked here frequently throughout the 4 seasons and love every square inch of this treasure. Not only is this a living museum of trees, but the feel of moving from one type of forest to another is incredible as you walk along the various trails. The hiking is very easy and perfect for taking along youngsters and seniors. Little ones will enjoy the Ewok platform set amongst giant Redwoods. Seniors might love the easy valley walk through Maples. There are plenty of benches along the trails for resting and cozy romance. Just amazing!
  • This is a great place for runners, walkers, and picnics. I really enjoy the variety of paths and occasional views. It is mostly forested, with the tree's being labeled and occasionally there is information about specific trees. It's great place to learn about trees or to simply enjoy a morning in nature. The parking lot does charge now, so be aware of that. There is a building with bathrooms for those with small children who might need that. Also, there is a covered picnic area.
  • Beautiful place. A wonderful amount of trails to walk not to mention the beautiful trees. Very serene and peaceful, this is a great place to unwind.
  • A variety of nice walks through a wide range of flora. The redwood walk is a short walk and worth the journey. Other walks can be taken according to fitness and time available. A popular spot for picnics and wedding receptions.
  • Great trails and an awesome collection of trees from around the world. If you have kids though, beware! The trees leave their used needles everywhere. Especially bad in the conifer sections, you can't avoid them in places.
