Best hiking trails in Portland?

What are the best hiking spots in or around Portland? I'm willing to make a drive if you know of any great spots outside of the city.  I'm pretty fit and would like some advance trails, but I'm willing to sacrifice on that if there are any especially good views or scenery!

    My absolute favorite place to hike in the Portland area is on the trails along the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area near Multnomah Falls and Bridal Veil Falls. This entire area is full of truly phenomenal views, dark wooded areas, waterfalls and streams, overlooks, etc. There's a great website that lists them all with details on length and difficulty, so check it out. Multnomah Falls is only about 30 minutes from Portland by car.

    Look at Columbia gorge its a short drive with a million hikes varying in difficulty. Lot of water falls on Historic Columbia River Highway State Trail but some of the best ones are the ones you hike to. I liked the Ponytail Falls

    Go check out the Ape Cave near Mount Saint Helens! I have a blog post about it. You can get your hike on, plus check out a super-awesome lava tube. Win!

    Check out Dog Mountain trailhead which is part of the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area. Beautiful wildflowers and you see Columbia River from above. HOWEVER, it is a 3,000 feet climb so you need to be in decent shape.

    Definitely Cape Lookout State Park at the beach - both hikes, down to the beach and out to the cape are sublime - pack a lunch for the beach. Stay at Oceanside at the ocean front cabins - eat at Roseanna's Cafe. Play on the beach and eat breakfast at the Blue Agate Cafe!!

    Enjoy!!
