  • This park is the product of a local, grassroots group formed many years ago that was dedicated to preserving the lower Tryon Creek watershed from development. It is a gem rivaling the more...  more »
  • Tryon Natural area is small, very pretty, close-in to Portland's city center and a good place to take young hikers on a .5-1.0 mile hike on easy terrain. Not intended for serious hikers.  more »

  • I love the natural canopy that this park has, as it provides ample cover during a day with light rain. The park features an equestrian parking lot and trails. The trails for pedestrians are well maintained and for all levels of difficulty. If you visit the newly renovated Nature Center you can learn about the park and the types of nature one might encounter when on a trail. There are public restrooms and water fountains. The park also offers children's activities and tours.
  • An escape back to nature! Tyron Creek State Natural Area is a 650 acre plus beautiful day use nature area with 8 miles of intersecting hiking trails. 3.5 miles of horse trail and a 3 mile paved bicycle trail. Outdoor fun for both young and old. A nature learning center, and gift shop. Pet friendly too!
