Distance: about 3.5 miles
Location: Washington Park in Portland, Oregon
I’m recovering from a slight ankle sprain, so we went on a long walk at Hoyt Arboretum in Portland instead of a more vigorous hike in the Gorge. Since it’s been fairly dry without much rain in the past week, the trails aren’t as muddy as they can be at this time of year. New trail signage has been installed all through the park, and new parking stations are in place to pay for parking at any of the lots in Washington Park.
