Cosa farete

Here's the "Best of Portland" forest hike and scenic tour - unique to our city - that includes Forest Park, the glorious Pittock Mansion estate with views of city/rivers/mountains, and the best of Washington Park, too. We'll enjoy the famous Wildwood trail, touch the 242' tallest tree in an American city, enjoy a babbling creek + waterfalls, wild birdsong, touch the Old Stone House, and snap selfies at the summit viewpoint overlooking Portland and Mt Hood. On clear days see 4 Cascade volcano peaks! Wow... and that's just the first half!

We then continue downhill, stepping on the elegant Walker footbridge (brand new Oct-2019!) for two more glorious Wildwood trail miles through Washington Park and Hoyt Arboretum, relax on a bench of the Redwood forest deck, inspect exotic, well-marked trees from around the world, and finish at our famous Japanese Garden and International Rose Test Garden complex (tour on your own if you wish).

This 5-mile hike with 900-foot vertical gain is perfect for fitness seekers, will last 3 - 3.5 hours and I'll tailor it for you! Want a 2-hour version? Decide at the top to grab a Lyft/Uber to skip the 2nd half. Waste no precious vacation time: our trail's start and end are less than 3 miles from Portland's center, a few minutes by car.

COVID safety: We will all wear masks and maintain social distance. I'll have hand sanitizer for all to use.
Other things to note
Bring light layers for a 3-hour outdoors experience. It's a splendid hike in the rain, but bring a raincoat + hat/hood. Comfy walking/running shoes or light hikers are best for our unpaved forest trail.

This hike is my personal favorite hike in Portland's Forest/Washington Park complex. I've done it countless times over 15 years, leading many people and groups. With 900' of elevation gain it's strenuous if done quickly, but the beauty, nature and photo spectaculars along the route beg one to move more slowly....

What a wonderful experience. Mark and Laura were wonderful guides, super informative, so fun, and all around great people. I couldn't have asked for a better or more refreshing experience than spending the day with Mark and Laura on this hike. Mark provides a lot of information about the geology, plant life and area along the trails. He really makes this a enjoyable experience and I'm glad to have met them! Definitely recommend!

Mark and Laura were the perfect guides and companions. My 12-year-old daughter and I greatly enjoyed the hike through Forest and Washington Park. Mark shared much interesting information that added so much to our enjoyment of the hike. As a bonus, Mark and Laura took tons of photos so that we could really just immerse ourselves in the beauty of the nature surrounding us. Beautiful setting, warm guides, lovely hike--a wonderful way to spend your morning in Portland. Highly highly recommended!

Mark’s tour was AMAZING. It’s a super efficient way to see some of the top Portland sights, and Mark’s knowledge and warm personality made it all the more enjoyable. He went out of his way to make it a special experience for us. The hike isn’t too tough if you’re not experienced hikers, but it’s still a nice workout. The sights are breathtaking. Highly recommend!
