You can't visit Portland without taking a hike in one of America's premier city parks, Forest Park! Forest Park is huge - it's the largest urban wilderness in the United States - and has over 18 trailheads. We will meet at my Airbnb in NE Portland and drive to one of the central sections of the forest, away from the crowded trails. We'll meet up and I will drive us to one of the quieter trailheads in the park - away from crowded tourist spots. On the way there we will enjoy good views of the park and the Lewis & Clark campsite that changed the course of history for this area. Our hike will take approximately two hours at a moderate pace with plenty of opportunities to pause for photos and to enjoy the views. We'll cross wooden bridges, look for native plants, and keep a watchful eye open for great blue herons, hummingbirds, and woodpeckers. Come alone, bring a friend, and make some new ones on this friendly hike! I'll tell you a little about the history of the park, Native Americans who lived here, and how everything changed when Lewis & Clark showed up 200 years ago. I look forward to walking with you - we'll have a great time!

Hi, I'm Sarah! I have spent 23 years getting to know Forest Park. I served as the public information officer for Portland Parks & Recreation, which manages this forest. I am also an avid hiker, trekking more than 500 miles in the forest in the past two years. Let me show you ancient trees, magnificent ferns, and bubbling creeks of these ancient woods. Along the way I will share about the Native Americans who lived here as well as Lewis & Clark and the pioneers who settled in this magnificent place. This hike is suitable for all interested in exploring a true Pacific Northwest Rainforest. All abilities welcome!

Forest Park is one of the largest urban parks in the world and the only city wilderness park in the United States. The park is home to hundreds of native plants and animals and offers more than 80 miles of trails. No other city park in North America can offer such a natural experience. We will be hiking for approximately 5-miles along several trails, visiting the most scenic spots available depending upon the season.
