Follow this trail to Pittock Mansion for a panoramic view of Portland. You will have great views of Portland and will also have a great opportunity for bird watching. Take the time to explore the grounds. The building is overseen by the Bureau of Parks and Recreation and it is open for touring.

I loved this trail today. A little muddy in spots but overall very well maintained. The elevation change is no joke and the view from the top is lovely. Trillium was in bloom everywhere which was an added bonus!

Great city trail in Portland’s acclaimed Forest Park. The lower trail follows a stream. The upper trail leads to a lovely view of the city and Mt. Hood beyond from the gardens of the elegant Pittock Mansion. Water bowl for doggies and the ticket office for the indoor tour of Pittock.

Pretty easy hike, great little stream. when you take the turn up to Pittock Mansion be prepared for the incline. I've hiked this trail two times now. The first time I wasn't in the best shape so it was a nice burn. The second time I was in better shape so it wasn't as bad, but I powered up it and was out of breath by the time I got to the top because I was hiking up pretty quickly.

I thought this was a great hike! So fun for the puppers and I. Beautiful scenery and very peaceful.

If you only have time for one hike in PDX, do Upper Mcleay to Pittock mansion and pack a lunch for when you get to the top.

Nice little urban park trail. Great views, decent climbed, a bit heavily trafficked for my taste but worth doing!

Normally a great hike! ***FYI Lower McCleay is closed for construction!***
Still a nice hike along Wildwood to Pittock Mansion, but expect to detour through neighborhood for McCleay.

Really is a 4 star trail, but the opportunity to explore the Pittock Mansion makes it a 5 star. Great views, little bit of a challenge with elevation.

Very crowded trail, with a lot of runners and dogs off leash.
