Hiking in Forest ParkHiking in Forest Park

A small, personable downtown with half-size city blocks (200 feet vs. the standard 400-foot monsters) and plentiful public spaces make Portland an ideal city to explore on foot.

With the exception of the West Hills, home to Washington and Forest parks, and the east side’s volcanic cinder cones, which include Mt. Tabor and Rocky Butte, Portland is relatively free of steep inclines.
