At 5,000 acres, it's the country's largest urban wilderness. What that means for you is that a taste of the Pacific Northwest's gorgeous natural scenery is just a stone's throw from downtown. Miles of trails serve bikers, hikers, and casual strollers. One of the most popular hikes is the portion of the Leif Erikson trail that begins at the end of N.W. Thurman Street. A wide, leafy fire trail with a gradual uphill grade, it's an easy way to get a taste of this forest without even having to put on sneakers. It's particularly beautiful in the fall when the leaves change. A more strenuous option takes you from the Upper MacLeay parking lot (located just off Cornell) one mile uphill along a narrow, forested trail to Pittock Mansion, which has panoramic city views, with snowcapped Mount Hood and Mount St. Helens in the distance. But these are just the tip of the iceberg—or forest, in this case. Those interested in hooking up with local hikers or learning about other trails should check out the website of local hiking group the Mazamas at Forest Park is also home to a variety of attractions, including the Oregon Zoo, the arboretum, the Rose Garden, an amphitheatre that hosts free concerts and plays in the summer, and numerous other attractions.
