  1. You know when you have a trail run that redeems all those other trail runs that kinda stunk? Well, Misery Ridge trail at Smith Rock Park is that one.

    The amount of time needed to complete this run is completely dependent on whether or not you brought your camera. If you don't care to check out the scenery you can probably finish the run in an hour. But if you did, then prepare to stop several times for both the view and to check out the awesome rock climbers.
  2. It's somewhat surprising that more Portlanders do not know about this rather exceptional urban park. Variety in terms of terrain and trail is one of this 325-acre park's greatest attributes. Anyone can find something to suit their desires at Lacamas Park.

    Depends on which loop you choose.
  4. It's hard to believe that something this wild and lush is so close to downtown. You'll feel miles away in this truly magnificent canyon.

  5. With 185-acres and 21-miles of really well maintained trails, the Hoyt Aboretum in Portland's Washington Park is a really great place to enjoy a post-work or weekend trail run or hike.
