Forest Park Hike to Pittock Mansion Wildwood Trail Upper MacLeay Trail Portland Oregon
One of the most popular places to visit in Portland is Pittock Mansion, perhaps less so for the building itself than for its view over Portland. You can drive right up to the mansion, which offers tours, but why not hike up through Forest Park and immerse yourself in a temperate rainforest that's closer to the city than you might expect? A partial loop hike on Wildwood... Read more.
