"Well there's no map shows where I'm going. And I can't say, just where I've been.
But with you girl, by my side more, there ain't no game that I can't win.
Now, I believe you should run with me for a while."

The Hoyt Arboretum (living tree museum) is a gorgeous place in Portland (not that far at all from downtown, which is hard to believe).
Pick your choice of trail between different type of tress, and keep your eyes open for the beautiful sights. The trails aren't terribly taxing, and are great for casual walking/hiking/trail running (aka friendly for all ages/levels of fitness).

Hoyt Arboretum is a 'living tree museum', where a short walk can take you from tall redwoods, to wide spruces, to wonderfully smelling maple trees.
Hoyt Arboretum is part of Washington Park, which encompasses the Oregon Zoo, the Portland Children's Museum, the World Forestry Center, the Portland Japanese Garden, the International Rose Test Garden, and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. It is also part of Forest Park that has amazing trails with dense rain forest, spanning viewpoints to valleys. Be sure to take some time to explore this.
