While visiting Portland, my two teenagers and I were looking for something inexpensive to do without getting into the car. We were staying downtown so this "trail" was convenient. We started in Pioneer Square—a couple of blocks from the hotel. There is nothing strenuous about...More
It goes up. It goes down. If it's summer, you may be looking at the guy half way up who likes to sunbathe in his all-the-way nude. And for this you will spend the same as a stiff drink or two... or a movie.
My husband and I weren’t too familiar with hiking in Portland, but the woman at the visitors kiosk recommend this trail. This was a great way to walk throughout Portland and see all of the sites. We bought an all day transportation pass which was...More
Just did the 4T trail today while we had visitors in town. It's a fun loop transitioning between the forest and the city, but if you just follow each leg of the trail, it's really just a long walk followed by various forms of transportation...More
This hike is a great way to get moderate exercise, spend some time outdoors, and explore Portland's transit options.
I strongly recommend viewing an online map first, so you know you're on-course. There is signage, but you have to look for it.
I started from...More
This trail and it's lookout from Council Crest reminds me of the hike through San Francisco's Sutro Forest, above UCSF down to the Haight, and Telegraph Hill's summit at the base of Coit Tower. Like the first one, while being a lot greener in early...More
I've done this hike/experience 3 times now. Each time I took a different path for the hike. Finally got it right the 3rd time. Once you get to Council Crest park wind around to the signage a the top. Following the correct path make it...More
We just hiked the trail portion of the loop. We paid $8 to park all day at the Oregon Zoo. We had to cross the highway to get on the trail. The trail itself started off at a slow incline and then steady switch backs...More
We heard about the 4 T Trail from friends. For the most part the trail was well marked with the first mile being pretty steep (if you start at the zoo). We couldn't figure out how to find the tram and ended up back on...More
This hike is always fun to try even in the winter. As an urban hike it makes a day in the city an adventure that can include some trails and shopping. It can be as long as you want if you wander in Portland or...More

Hi. Probably clockwise is less elevation gain and more downhill. We did it counter clockwise. It really is not strenuous. We finished the circuit in 2 hrs and that was taking our time and stopping for many photos.
