Our expert local guides will take you past the modern identity of Portland back to a more dangerous era, where murders, kidnappings, and organized crime could be found behind most of the elegant storefronts of the city. Listen to stories taken straight out of the true history of the last 150 years, and watch for yourself as the spirits of the past can still be seen today.

Crowded with little parking. Spandex Mafia( bicyclists) can hog the roads esp on Fairmount Blvd. Go Early.Safe enough, but car clouting is common in unattended vehicles. Don't go at night, as Park Closes early, Portland PD enforces park closure every night.Bring a lunch, and water, as most fountains are INOP. No restrooms either. Known neighborhood for 50 years, beautiful homes on council Crest drive to view, but, Portland's personal crime has skyrocketed, even in this nice neighborhood. Be aware of whose about you, and keep your distance if your instincts trigger red flags. Have a great time though! Oregon CHL Permit Holders ( Oregon) ARE allowed in open park spaces in Oregon. Dogs must be on lead, and clean up after them or Up to a $278.00 fine will ensue. Animal control patrols parks and issues citations a lot!

The views here are amazing. From this vantage point you get unobstructed views of Mount Hood, Mount Saint Helens, Mount Adams and a peekaboo view of Mount Rainier. If you have a day to enjoy this park, consider doing the 4 T Trail (Tram, trolley, train and trail). Or just take a picnic lunch up to the park and relax and enjoy. Kid and dog friendly.

Beautiful hike on an early Sunday afternoon visiting from South Carolina. View at the top was great, however the hike is amid neighborhoods and houses and at one point two different leaf blowers were going off in different directions for the duration of the hike. One star off for lack of peace

Head up to Council Crest to see the city and the snow-capped peaks in the distance. Make sure to stand in the center of the circle on the gold marker and talk out loud - I won't give away the secret about what happens, but it's pretty cool.
