Forest

 

Imagine stepping into a lush forest, where woodpeckers forage, squirrels leap from limb to limb, owlets wait quietly for their next meal, beavers work busily by the creek, bats bury deep within the creviced bark of a Douglas-fir tree, and wildflowers paint the understory as the seasons change. Discover it all, here at Tryon Creek State Natural Area, your oasis in the city. Where you can explore 658 acres of second-growth forests, walk along the meandering Tryon Creek, and connect with the flora and fauna that call this special place home.

 

Located about 15 minutes from downtown Portland is Oregon’s only state park within a major metropolitan area. What will you explore today?

  • 8-miles of hiking trails, 3.5 miles of horse trail, 3-mile paved bicycle trail, and a paved all abilities trail

  • 8 bridges and a wetland boardwalk

  • Nature Center with interpretive exhibits and store

  • Glenn Jackson Shelter

  • Guided hikes, Day Camps, Junior Ranger Program, School Field Trips, Special Events and many more.
