  • This is a beautiful way to spend a day. Bring plenty of water to stay hydrated. Pretty much any of the paths you take is beautiful. I definitely recommend you grab a map before you head on the trails. While there are trail markers, there aren't directions to get back to the parking lots. It's also important to remember that there are about 200 acres of trees in the Hoyt Arboretum, so it's important to pick your route beforehand and park accordingly. It can be tough to find parking so I recommend you go early if possible, or take the metro up to the zoo and walk from there.
  • Best ceremony wedding venue ever. So glad we chose this location. It was beautiful in snow and in spring. Easy to get a permit for a party or wedding in our case. Just have to go through the lottery at the beginning of the year. But also great for hikes (free) any other time. So beautiful and peaceful. I wish this was right outside my door. Oregon is calling me and i can't not pick up the phone!
  • Absolutely beautiful, like heaven on earth. Tons of different tree species make for a stunning series of hikes. I would recommend bringing a lunch with you and making an entire day of it. There's a nice picnic pavilion as well. This will be a go to for us each time we go back to Portland. Highly recommended.
  • I LOVE THIS PLACE. There is so much to do and see here, and it's unlike any park or Arboretum you've ever seen! It has direct access to the Oregon Zoo, World Forestry Center, Children's museum, and has the largest collection of conifers on the planet. I also participate in the Arborists in the Arboretum event annually and I get to climb/preserve some of the largest trees!!
  • Beautiful hike through some beautiful I'll forest. There are over 200 acres of trees though so make sure you know the path you're trying to take so you do not end u pl lost. Lots of picnic areas along the way as well.
