Nice walk! Pretty popular and you have to walk on a lot of roads but it was still very pretty! Got a good workout

Good trail, easy to access. Tons of people, but hardly any garbage this time. Some of the best views in Portland.

wow. very popular spot. lots of people enjoying the outdoors on this holiday. less than impressed with the views. cloudy though.

It was a beautiful day out today. Not too warm, and no rain! It was awfully busy. I almost ran into a couple of runners! It wasn’t very muddy for me. Enjoy.

Easy hike with lots of people! Very populated since the weather is beautiful and it’s Easter weekend.

sweet little trail with good views in a clear day

Live down the street. Will likely always live within eyesight of Tabor. It is our family’s happy place!

Beautiful park trails right in the city! Great elevation for some challenge, or options to ease up. Many side trails for variety! Could spend hours exploring!

Open space to walk on paths. Beautiful scenery throughout park. Blackberries to be plucked. Parking was full in first lot, but drove to reservoir area and took in the view

Decent place to wander with family or pooches. I'll come back with my father who is getting too old for climbs but still appreciates being in nature because you can drive all the way to the top.

beautiful view. uphill, downhill, and flat terrain. easy to get to if you're in Portland. trail, stair, or road options. very dog friendly. usually occupied by a lot of other people. not a secluded area at all. great for all levels.

Super familiar park for me. It's not a place to get solitude, but it is a great place to hang out or get exercise. The trails are varied, and some are less populated. There's often some kind of event going on, and there are many areas for kids to enjoy as well as adults. Though I've probably hiked every trail over the years, now that I have a GPS, I guess I'll do it all again while painting cyan lines on the map.

Easy to follow, year round, dog friendly, can be steep in certain areas but very family friendly. Nice view of Portland at the summit, along with a basketball court, playgrounds and restrooms.

Fun, scenic, and easy hike. My friend and I did this loop with our kids- ages 5yo, 2yo, and 11weeks. It was a gorgeous, hot, clear day (Monday, April 10 at 11:30am). We started on Mount Tabor Park Road by reservoir #5 and hiked clockwise. I would definitely do this again. The biggest downside was finding a place to meet up with my friend where we could both park.

I head here when short on time and needing a quick run with a little bit of climb. This loop is intended to be run clockwise though I often see people going in the opposite direction. My only complaint is that part of this trail is actually just paved path or road, boo. But all in all it’s decent for being urban. On a clear day there are views of the waterfront/downtown and even with the crowds, it’s usually still peaceful and easy to maneuver.

This 19th century urban park in Portland, Oregon is very popular. It features a peak with nice views and several reservoirs for the city’s water supply. Lots of people and dogs on well used trails.

We followed most of a route from Laura Foster’s “Portland Hill Walks” which includes very interesting residential areas as well as the park itself.

I’m from Southern California here for a conference this week and I loved this trail! Loved all the green and space! My run map is a little all over the place but I had fun! Definitely will try and come back this week and explore more. Good workout for this novice trail runner. Well maintained and marked trails.
