Do you like hiking, biking, or horse riding and are looking for a great place to get outside in the Portland Metro area? In this first episode of Live, Love, Learn Portland, I’m going to take you to the Tryon Creek Trails right here in Southwest Portland. We’ll explore the natural beauty of the area and look at the housing options in nearby neighborhoods.
Welcome To Tryon Creek Trails
I’m out here today with my kiddos at the Tryon Creek Trails to show you everything this beautiful area has to offer. We’re going to take you on a quick little loop that’s about a mile, going down to the creek and then circling back around.
Tryon Creek Trails is officially located in Southwest Portland. It’s about five minutes from downtown Lake Oswego and about 10 to 15 minutes from downtown Portland. With easy freeway access, we’re also close to the Willamette River and about 20 minutes from the Portland International Airport. So regardless of where you’re coming from, it’s really quick and easy to get outside and have nature all around.
While I usually become a pack mule at some point in the hike, it’s a great place for my boys to come out in nature and get some fresh air. As you walk, bike, or hike, you’re surrounded by trees and woods.
Now that you’ve learned about Tryon Creek Trails, you might be curious about what it costs to live in the area. Generally speaking, Tryon Creek is so large that it touches a lot of different neighborhoods and areas in Portland and Lake Oswego. This means you can get a wide array of home values and types.
Some of the neighborhoods that run along Tryon Creek State Park are really great ones, in my opinion. You have Marshall Park and Arnold Creek, two that are really unique in the sense that it’s not a grid outline for those neighborhoods. There are a lot of twists, turns, hills, and really beautiful hidden gems in those neighborhoods as well as great schools.
On the other side closest to the Willamette River is Dunthorpe, one of the most exclusive neighborhoods in the Portland Metro area. While it has its own public schools, you have to live within that Dunthorpe neighborhood to get into the Riverdale public schools; it’s pretty difficult. The southern part of Tryon Creek runs along First Addition in Lake Oswego and is highly sought after.
Since Tryon Creek is so large and touches so many different neighborhoods, there are townhomes and condos nearby that range in the $200,000s up to the millions and multi-millions. If you’re looking more specifically in the Dunthorpe neighborhood or First Addition in downtown Lake Oswego, let me know and I can send you an updated list of properties for sale that match your needs in this area.
Make Portland Your Home
I hope this gives you a good idea of the natural beauty and great home options available in the Portland Metro area. Tryon Creek is definitely a place you want to check out for yourself if you haven’t already. And if you have, make sure you come back and explore again.
