Portland's answer to NYC's Central Park or SF's Golden Gate Park, this sprawling wilderness area is astonishingly wild and beautiful on its own, but especially considering it's within city limits. There are miles of trails for hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding, and plenty of places to stop and picnic or check out the view of the city.

One of the biggest innercity parks in the country, Forest Park encompasses miles of woodland trails, and is super popular with hikers and joggers. The most popular trail here is the Wildwood Trail, which is around 30 miles long and connects Forest Park to the adjacent Washington Park (where you'll find the zoo, the Rose Garden, the Children's Museum, and the Japanese Gardens). The Audubon Society is also inside the park.

Spanning over 5,000 acres, Forest Park is a great place in Portland to jog, hike, and bike. I heard weekends can get crowded, but I've been during the weekdays and there weren't that many people around. It's huge, scenic and highly recommended if you want to experience nature but haven't trekked out to the Columbia Gorge or other natural areas outside of Portland.Recommended for:Outdoor Enthusiasts

There are tons of hiking and biking trails in this area. It's close to downtown but not too many tourists would think to go here. You could hike in the beautiful green trees for hours! Parking can be limited. http://www.portlandonline.com/parks/finder/index.cfm?PropertyID=127&action=ViewPark

Great spot up in the hills to bike / jog, limited views but nice trails. For the mountain bikers there is some pretty epic single track throughout the park, mostly gnarly downhill with some painful climbs if you go off the main carriage trail on the way up.

One of the largest forested parks within a major city in the U.S. You could totally get lost in here. I would love to do an overnight backpacking/camping here. I don't think that it would be legal per say, but I wouldn't be hurting anyone so I might try it anyway.Recommended for:Backpackers

Forest Park is one of the largest urban forests in the country. If you like to bike (or hike if your traveling light) then its a great way to get in some nature, and spring and summer in the Pacific NW is really perfect for weather. Watch longboarders tear down some of the roads and other classically Portland antics, drink some stumptown, and enjoy the beauty.
