  • Best views of the city and mountains. Excellent lunch break stop if you are doing thw 4T trail. Great off leash dog park.
  • Has proven to be a good place to study and work when sunny. Was also quite enjoyable the one time I have storm watched here.
  • Great storm watching location. The wind blowing through the tall tower is quite relaxing. Signs indicate a portable toilet will be in place soon.
  • Uniquely Portland, beautiful view all around and a pan out for anyone to play. The hike up was fun too!
  • Off leash dog park down the hill Great views and breeze or wind. Parking depends on how busy the park is, trailers and long vehicles may have trouble with the roads getting to the park. Four good pokestops and a gym with good spawns.

Where to stay in Portland

For easy foot access to Portland's best shopping, dining, and entertainment, stay in or around the downtown area, connected to the rest of the city by light rail. This compact and busy part of Portland contains the highest concentration of hotel rooms in the city, allowing you to explore options ranging from boutique properties to big chains. Thanks to Portland's convenient transportation system, you can also choose a less expensive motel or bed and breakfast in one of the outlying neighborhoods, and still be within minutes of most major tourist attractions.
