This was a fun loop trail close enough to the city for a quick trip but far enough out to get some fresh air. The trail is about 60/40 trees/sun. There are great views of Mount Hood and other Cascades. Lots of wild flowers and beautiful greens. It was not crowded at all which was nice. Park at 148th Ave.

Very cool trail, well maintained, lot's of shade and open views. Mildly busy but only for a few seconds did you pass by people. Lot's of horse poop so mind your steps. A lot of mountain bikers as well. Overall, great trail to run, walk, bike, take your puppers, or your kiddos!

Perfect quick hike close to home. No water on the trail so bring some for the dog next time. Lots of scat — horse and other. Went early. I’m sure it would be super-crowded later in the day. Still saw lots of bikes and a few other hikers/runners.

Very well marked and maintained trail. Beautiful scenery along the way. Watch out for dog poop (please pick up after your animal) and some people have their dogs off leash. Not a bad hike for being so close to the city. Plenty of street parking near the beginning of the trail.

I absolutely love this. It is beautiful, and it connects with several other paths. It also hooks up with the Springwater corridor. The Ellis Street entrance has street parking.

Nice quick trail in town. Not a lot of share so bring sunscreen.

Great place to hike/walk right on the edge of Portland! Limited about of people still because the gates to the parking lot are closed, but there are plenty of neighborhood access points!

Great hike through some old and new growth timber.

Nice relaxing walk through this beautiful open space in the middle of SE Portland. I wouldn’t really call it a hike but we spent a few hours out exploring the trails, unfortunately it was cloudy so could not see any of the several mountains/volcanoes from the viewpoint or trails. Still a nice day. We saw some deer at the beginning. Beautiful wildflowers everywhere with accompanying honeybees and bumblebees. Enjoyed this place and would come back maybe on a clearer day (we do get those sometimes here). The gate to the park is closed, and the road leading up to was full of cars. We parked a block down on 162nd and walked in. The hill is probably the hardest part of this “hike” lol

I would recommend this trail for a clear day. Lots of views all around. Big fields with wildflowers and deer. Forested paths as well.

The trails are kind of all over the place so we did our best to connect certain paths to cover the park best. Great overlook views of the mountain range and valleys below. Trails weave through wildflower meadows then dip into shaded thick forest- so you get a nice mix! Gates still closed for covid, but plenty of side street parking nearby.

6/30/20, park is closed

Nice varied walk: meadow and forest, views out and sheltered quiet places. Didnt like sharing relatively narrow paths with mountain bikes.

Couldn't start from the main parking lot. Main gates were closed, keeping vehicles from driving up. This also meant far fewer people were in the park since it meant walking a lot farther from near Powell Blvd. The route is a good one except for its poor GPS alignment with actual trails in several spots. I'll try to submit a route edit so it aligns better, following the intended trails more closely. As it is currently, AllTrails regularly notifies "off route" because the route's lines don't follow the trails accurately enough in some spots. You'd have to wander through chest-high meadows to 100% satisfy the route. Tons of beautiful wildflowers everywhere!

A great loop that showcases the variety found on Powell Butte. Usually my favorite is the western side of the park shaded with a dense canopy and large trees. Today the upper, open meadow area also had considerable interest due to the prevalence of wildflowers. The park was not crowded at all today because the main gate is closed. Anyone visiting has to park farther away and hike in, greatly reducing the normal number of hikers.

Great quick inner day hike, numerous routes available depending how long want to go for.

Great trail my fiancée and I did it in a little over an hour. Good incline less trafficked then some of Powell’s buttes more known trails. I personally really enjoyed it will come back again to get a better finish time! Most of the trail is dirt so trail shoes would be ideal!

Love these trails and usually go through here at least once a week. The main entrance is on 162nd and takes you right to the more open areas (the gates are closed now though so your better off parking at one of the other openings (148th/Holgate/Raymond Street). I enjoy the scenery from the entrance on 148th and it provides a simple ten minute loop if you don’t have much time and direct access to the rest of the trails. Tons of wildlife in this area, frequently see barred owls and hawks near dawn as well as woodpeckers, chipmunks, varieties of fungus and more. The tall Doug Firs, Big leaf maples, and Cedars provide tons of cover making this area great when it’s raining.

Impressive for an in town hike. Get a lil bit of hill work, forest views, meadow, and views of surrounding peaks on a clear day.

Still open. You have to walk up from the gate that is locked but nice hike!

Fun mixed view walk. The best part was the 3 volcano view! I recommend following this map because there are lots of different trails and it’s easy to cut your walk short.
