Tualatin Hills Nature Park

Never take for granted the easily accessible hikes in your own neighborhood. On a day when you don’t have time to invest in driving to a trailhead but you want to spend some time in nature this is your best option. You can spend hours wandering through this park. Take a map with you at the entrance, or just find your own way. All the side trails are marked and eventually lead back to the main paved path- The Vine Maple Trail.

Here’s the address: 15655 SW Millikan Way, Beaverton OR 97006

*No charge to park, and no dogs allowed.

When you’re walking through this park you forget you’re in Beaverton. It’s easy to find a quiet, peaceful corner and several of the trails lead to ponds.

One of my favorite parts of this park is the shady Cedar Grove with giant old western red cedars.
