Stunning little trails just minutes from the city provide an excellent introduction to the forest and its habitat for little hikers.
Trails are open dawn to dusk everyday. Nature store open 10am-6pm most days.
You can walk here from the Macleay Trail or the Pittock Mansion. Nob Hill and Washington Park are close by.
There’s plenty more of Forest Park to explore, including Hoyt Arboretum, Macleay Trail and Big Stump to name but three. In terms of its varied beauty and child friendliness, Tryon Creek is a very close match on a larger scale. The nearby World Forestry Center provides further educational opportunities on forest habitats.
