Loved the hike! Lots of beautiful scenery including the stone house. The Pittock mansion is a beautiful sight, be sure to get there before 4pm if you want to view the amazing home! Admission is $10 for adults.

I hate going uphill, so this was rough. It was also like 90 degrees, so that didn't help. Going down was a breeze!

We've hiked this 2 times! Great trail and it well maintained. Not overly crowded. Lots of foot traffic but still great! Passing the witches house is a great visual and the sounds of the water is a nice change since it's so close to pdx! A great workout of switchbacks going up towards pittock mansion!

My husband and I traveled here from San Diego. We love trail running but are used to dry climate. This was the most beautiful run I've ever done. Brutal and unforgiving though with lots of hills. All worth it though because the scenery is amazing. Definitely recommend for a hike or a daring run.

One of my favorite hikes conveniently located in Portland! Expect to share the trail with others as it's regularly traveled. Great for trail running, too. The views of Portland from the mansion are incredible and it's a lovely spot to relax before headed back down.
