Tualatin Valley’s Great Outdoors


Autumn’s in the Air

Situated between Portland and the Oregon Coast, the Tualatin Valley’s outdoor spaces are literally in Portland’s backyard.

Many of the Tualatin Valley’s 727 square miles are devoted to pristine, rural wetlands, nature parks, wildlife refuges, verdant forests, tranquil waters and open fields.

The vastness of the Tualatin Valley, especially when venturing beyond the urban cities, offers innumerable options for outdoor recreation. Explore our outdoors and find the perfect spots for hiking, cycling, paddle trips, fishing, wildlife watching, scenic drives and other outdoor pursuits.
