  • I love this trail. So green and lush this time of year. A nice break from the city. You can almost forget you're in a populated area.
  • Great part that has trails to ride bikes and walk. Some parts of the trail is open with great view of Portland and Mt. Hood. Other part of trails goes through beautiful green forest. There are some picnic tables and bathrooms available.
  • Lots of trails! Every junction is clearly marked. Everyone you see if friendly! There's a couple "emergency" junctions where they have bathrooms. It gets pretty busy so don't expect to be completely alone with nature
  • Great place to go for a morning jog. You can be adventurous and go off the butte through the forest on a long shady hike, or stay in the grasslands atop the butte to enjoy scenic views of Mt. Hood! If you have a good eye, you might spot wildlife like Hawks above or groundsquirrels! I ran here on a 5 mile run with Eastwind running club and it was gorgeous! Love Powell Butte Park!
  • It is a awesome nature park right in the city. Has great views of mt. Hood and at Helen's. You can also hike the many paths up there

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.
