About these ratings

If you're looking to spend some time outside but aren't willing to make the trek to Mount Hood, Forest Park is the place to go. At 5,000 acres, this is the largest urban park in America. When it comes to outdoor activities, Forest Park's got them: strap on your hiking boots or your bike helmet and explore some of the parks 70 miles of trails. If you're an avid bird-watcher, make sure to spend some time at the Portland Audubon Society, which offers a variety of activities geared toward birders.

Forest Park is located north of the Washington Park area and is open daily from sunrise to sunset. Visit the Portland Audubon Society's website for details on hours and programs.
