The Smith and Bybee Lakes area is the nation’s largest urban freshwater wetland. Tucked into North Portland’s industrial area, this is perhaps the best place to spot birds within the city. The lakes combine to make around 200 acres of explorable but shallow paddling. As a result, these lakes are generally better to explore in winter through early summer.
