Just 34 miles west of Portland, you’ve got the best backyard imaginable. Campers, hikers, cyclists or equestrians can spend their days exploring and adventuring across 1,800 acres of rolling hills, forest glades, gleaming streams and wildflowers, all crisscrossed with over 25 miles of trails.

Enjoy a family gathering at Hilltop Day-use Area, or embark on a journey from either of two trailheads – Hilltop or Clayhill to the north, with its horse staging area – and spend a few wide-eyed hours discovering the forest. The multi-use trails, plus 6 miles of cross-country and free-ride mountain bike trails, range from easy and forgiving to robust and challenging, all with ample opportunity for wildlife viewing and immersion in the scenery.

An 18-hole disc golf course winds its way through the trees just east of Hilltop, and a 3-hole course is near the amphitheater. Buy discs at the Stub Stewart Welcome Center, where bike helmets, water bottles and more are for sale. Stop by the Discovery Depot, where information awaits on the area's flora, fauna, and park history.
