You can’t visit Portland without taking a hike in one of America’s premier city parks, Forest Park!
Let Sarah show you giant fir and cedar trees, magnificent ferns, and bubbling creeks of these ancient woods. We’ll cross wooden bridges, look for native plants, and keep a watchful eye open for great blue herons, hummingbirds, and woodpeckers. Along the way Sarah will share some history about the Native Americans who lived here as well as Lewis & Clark and the pioneers who settled the Oregon Territory. Rainy days are magical in the Forest, and Sarah has all the gear you’ll need to stay warm and dry. Our hike will take approximately two hours at a moderate pace for 3-5 miles. There will be plenty of opportunities to pause for photos and to enjoy the views.

I had an amazing experience hiking with Sarah! We travelled as a small group of 7, and had a beautiful, safe hike through the forest. Sarah was very knowledgeable, and a wonderful communicator. 10/10 would highly recommend! (Kelsea)
We actually met Sara in a LYFT ride where she was super friendly and invited us to go on her tour through Airbnb! Super friendly, outgoing, and knows how to bring a group of people together. Def would recommend to take any of Sara’s tours! Thank you so much for creating a memorable experience for us. (Ariana)
We were Sarah’s 100th guided hike! Woohoo! Definitely a memorable hike. This was such a positive experience. Sarah is a wonderful person. She gave us lots of information on just about everything — local history, travel suggestions, you name it — Sarah knows it all! She went above and beyond for us. I couldn’t have asked for a better way to start my morning in Portland. I recommend Sarah to everyone. If I ever visit Portland again I wouldn’t hesitate to hike with Sarah again! (Jasmine)
Sarah was such an amazing guide. She is super friendly and we had great conversation and we walked through Forest Park. She is currently getting her masters in something with forestry (I forget the exact program), so she really brings a lot to to the table in terms of understanding the landscape and all the living beings in it – plants, animals, etc. I would recommend this tour 10/10 if you are in the area and have some time to do it!

Sarah was a great guide into beautiful Forest Park! It was a great beginning step for me to explore the park further. It was enjoyable listening to her knowledge of the park and area as well as her laid back and friendly style. I truly enjoyed the experience!! (Andrea)
