Our Favorite Portland Area Scenic Hikes

Dr Della Parker_Our Favorite Portland Area Scenic Hikes

For the outdoorsy folks among us, there are few better places to call home than Portland. With glittering rivers, snow-capped mountains and lush verdant forest trails, there is hardly a shortage of outdoor adventures to be had. All of these singular opportunities for physical activity make Portland one of the top ten fittest cities in America. We wholeheartedly endorse Portland’s love of outdoor adventuring, in fact, we love getting into the wild out of doors and testing our mettle against these three extraordinarily scenic local hikes.

Silver Falls/Trail of Ten Falls

Arguably one of the most notable hikes in the Portland area, this trail passes 10 waterfalls (from South Falls to North Falls) covering just under 7 miles and gaining 700 feet of elevation. There is also a recommended shortcut (omitting Twin and North Falls) that trims the loop to about 5 miles.

Tryon Creek State Park

Nestled in the west side of Portland, this vibrant jewel of a park offers one of our favorite hikes, the Tryon Creek Outer Loop Hike—which spans just over five and a half miles—is the perfect way to escape the bustle of the city without traveling beyond the metropolitan borders.

Ramona Falls

Oregon is known for spectacular waterfalls, and Ramona falls is no exception. This 7-mile loop is the ultimate summer hike for Portlanders anxious to explore wild regions without putting Portland proper too far behind them.
