These city hot spots are not to be missed

Many locals say the Portland Saturday Market is the number one attraction, but its limited hours and winter closure mean that some visitors won't get to go. Don't despair. The city has so many other unique things to do that even hitting just a few of these highlights should ensure a great trip.

Take a ride or a walk around this beautiful city park which holds 3 different reservoirs for Portland

I've drawn a quick path that will take you to views of all three reservoirs and to the top of Mt. Tabor but I also encourage...

Portland, Oregon, United States
Hiking | 12.6 miles (8.3 miles away)
In researching a route through Forest Park I saw a picture from a trail on this site of a sign that read "Rocking Chair Dam 6.0" miles. I looked up information for Rocking Chair Dam and it took awhile but I finally found a brief reference to it in Afoot & Afield Portland and Vancouver.Intrigued - I set out to find the dam. While the route I took places a loop at...

Forest Park - Pittock Mansion From Lower MacLeay Park (Portland, OR)

Portland, Oregon, United States
Hiking | 2.5 miles (8.1 miles away)
It only took a few steps into Forest Park for me to fall completely and utterly in love with it. I lucked out and got a briefly sunny day in Portland in late October and immediately set out for this trail. Some highlights:I took a bus from where I was staying to the Lower MacLeay Park Trailhead. Finding this trailhead was very easy and the bus dropped me relatively closeby. There's parking and...
Wildwood Trail to Pittock Mansion

Portland, Oregon, United States
Hiking | 5.9 miles (7.1 miles away)
A walk on the famous Wildwood Trail through Washington Park is a reminder of what's so wonderful about Portland. What other city would have a forest path leading from a world-class zoo, past Japanese garden, to a mansion with a mountain view?<br>Although the Wildwood Trail stretches for 30.2 miles, mostly through the surprisingly wild woods of Forest Park, the relatively short hikes recommended here take only two or three hours.

Tryon Creek Hike

Riverwood, Oregon, United States
Hiking | 2.2 miles (1.5 miles away)
Dylan had really wanted to go on the Paradise Park Hike with me yesterday but his little leggies would not be able to deal with the length of the hike.  I explained the length of the hike to him and promised him that we'd go on a hike together the next day.  We decided to go to Tryon Creek, which is a quick drive from our house.

Mt Talbert
by gozirra on Oct 31, 2010
Hiking | 1.8 miles (5.7 miles away)
Ramona and I did a short hike around the top of Mt Talbert this afternoon.  This is a beautiful little preserve where you'd least expect hiking to be available - less than a mile from Oregon's largest mall, Clackamas Town Center.   We did the "inner" hike, which goes to the top - the longer hike doesn't go near the top, but just goes around the base.  Since this is smack dab...
