Oregon has some of the densest forests in the continental United States. A great example of that is Tryon Creek. It is located in southern Portland. It hosts an 8-mile hiking trail that lets you experience all of the nature, and wildlife Tryon has to offer. This park also has eight different bridges you can walk over and a wetland boardwalk!
