Grant Butte would be great IF more people visited it and made it into what it could be. I have lived in Portland most of my life and never knew of its existence. And that's the problem: not enough people know about it. Because of this, almost no one goes on the trails, and they get overgrown. Some of the trails marked on OSM are so overgrown that they don't exist anymore. It made me wish I had a machete so I could cut a path. There is some nice beauty in the forest there, but it is a challenge to get through. I recommend wearing long pants. There are nettles and tall grass and blackberries, etc. I'm grading this on the curve since I see its potential. If it was maintained better it could be a nice park to visit. As it is when I visited.... not the best :S
