Take the Redwood Trail for a hike on that one afternoon you actually want to leave this place. The tall redwoods, streams, and berry bush-lined paths are sure to make you forget just how weird Portland can be, without ever having to leave the city.

This nearly 200-acre botanical bounty is home to 8,000+ kinds of greenery from all over the world. Guided tours are given in the summer, but detailed trail maps make it easy to take your own tour year round.

DO NOT GO IF YOU HAVE SMALL CHILDREN! – We went to the arboretum yesterday with our 19 month old son. He had a great time running around on the trails until we came across SEVERAL dogs who were not on leashes. There are many signs telling owners to keep their pets on leashes, but five out of the eight dogs we saw were NOT leashed. I was not comfortable letting my child hike knowing that there are so many potentially dangerous animals running free. I'm sure the owners are not aware of how dangerous a dog can be to a small child, but I am. My brother was hospitalized from defending his 3 year old son against an attacking dog who's owner didn't find it necessary to put a leash on him. Dogs not on leashes are a danger to small children. It's that simple.

Miles of trails, hundreds of plant species, and it's all right on the edge of town. – In Short
With 175 acres containing more than 900 species of plant life and 10 miles of trails, Hoyt Arboretum is an excellent destination for anyone wanting to spend the day outside. Out of all the arboretums in the United States, this regional park is home to one of the largest collections of distinct species of conifers, including the Dawn Redwood. In addition, the arboretum is a great place to view wildflowers, irises being one of the more popular kinds.

beautiful park – If it weren't for the views of Portland and the sometimes large weekend crowds, you'd never know Hoyt Arboretum in Washington Park was in the middle of the city. Many miles of meadering pretty trails crisscross the park and information about the arboretum's trails, flora, and fauna can be found at the visitor's center. Great place to spend a sunny summer afternoon.
