You can spend a good 2-2.5 hours on a few miles of family friendly, mostly flat trails. This area has a nice remote feel to it. Click here to see more photos, trail info and map

Good food after day of hiking in Portland

Blossoming Lotus restaurant. Pearl district. Great little restaurant (very little). It’s vegetarian and funky, but very delicious. I’m not vegan and went into this place reluctantly, expecting to hate the food, but my wife insisted. Turns out, the food was great and we went back there many times. It’s located inside a trendy yoga studio called Yoga Pearl. Click here for more local food and snack places.
