프로그램

Hike in the wildest place you'll ever be in a city, Portland's 5,200-acre wood, peopled with ghosts, witches and great stories of the new inhabitants, and the very very old.

Hiking on Forest Park's Wildwood Trail is an immersion, what we call "forest bathing," and here we feel the energies of both vitality and stasis. In this fluid place that exists both in and out of time —within a minute of leaving a Portland street — you can forget you are still in a city.

We start at Clearing Cafe, a jumping-off point for this 4.5 mile (7 km) hike in this densely forested area that limns the city's northwestern quadrant. We’ll hike up to the quixotic Witch’s Castle. We will tell you how it has gathered its energy in the decades since its damage in the 1962 Columbus Day windstorm, and in the castle, connect to the women whose stories thread through this place. Dark stories filled this place since the beginning of Portland history.

From here we head up the hill, stopping to see streams cascading into basalt-lined pools, beautiful moss- and fern-covered Western redcedars and big leaf maples, the towering Douglas-firs. We’ll arrive at the Pittock Mansion to view the city laid out before us before descending into Washington Park, through your choice of secret staircases and paths, or a hike across the brand-new pedestrian crossing over Burnside Blvd - in all about 1,000 feet elevation.
Other things to note
The hike is 4.5-5 miles (7-8 km), with about 1,000 feet of elevation gain, with lots of uneven terrain (but nothing technical). The first three miles contain some steep but doable climbs. Most guests in moderate shape find it a fun challenge -- but it can be difficult for less active guests.

I'm Sarah Gilbert, co-founder of Around Portland Tours and together with my partners & guides Everett, Edwin, and Jonathan will host the experiences. As a forest witch, I have taught our guides how to honor the energy of a forest; we'll weave you as guests into the experience we revere as our holy place.

I'm a published writer of essays and professional storyteller, and our guides work together to provide a collaborative story about the place that highlights each of their passions; from the street art that weaves into the forest, to the incredible depth and height of trees, to the rituals of the witches who come before us.

방문 장소

This is a ONE-WAY HIKE. Our tour starts in NW Portland in the neighborhood known simply as "Forest Park" by locals, and steps (literally) off a bridge, descending down into another world, a 5,200-acre forested park. We'll walk the Wildwood Trail, visit the Witches Castle, often see our favorite birds at the Pittock Mansion viewpoint, and walk a locals-only path from there to the Rose Garden--one we learned only through dozens of hikes.

A great hiking experience through the woods. Amazing guides with insightful and interesting discussions about Portland and its surroundings. Make sure to dress in layers as hiking can certainly make you sweat on some of the inclines! Highly recommend!

Absolutely awesome experience 10/10 recommend. Evertt was great and super knowledgeable. I loved learning about nature, listening to the history of the area as well as current graffiti art tid bits. Beautiful hiking area and just an absolute great experience over all. I’m excited to try the biking tour the next time I’m back in town

Everett (Sarah’s son) led the hike and was super friendly and knowledgeable. He had great stories about the various places we stopped at, brought snacks and water for our breaks, and gave me some good restaurant recommendations at the end. He was also very patient with my pace, lol.

Everett was a great tour guide! For the few hours that the experience lasted, we felt like a group of Portland locals just hanging out. The last leg of the hike was our favorite: a trek back to the Rose Gardens following a path that only a local would know about.
