Took my 4 year old on this no problem! Beautiful trees and different plants, took us about an hour. Definitely reccomend this for a quick little hike!

Basalt trail at the bottom of this route is pretty rocky with a steady incline.

This is a nice medium level trail! If you start at the trail head the app sends you to, its pretty much a climb all the way out and a descent all the way back. Pretty crowded this weekend but not too bad. Some gold elevation gains, and awesome flora and fauna to see. Was perfect for a Sunday afternoon hike.

Not so crowded for a Saturday afternoon. At times didn’t see many people. Nice park at the top to sit and relax. Nice views. Great for families.

First to Review

I have to admit that on a 85° day, 656 ft. elevation gain feels more like 1656 ft! Be that as it may, the trail is well maintained & has very few trip hazards. This day we found the sky at the top hazy so the view we were anticipating was somewhat subdued. Still, all 3 of us (2 humans, 1 dog) enjoyed the climb & felt satisfied we had accomplished something worthwhile. Not sure if we'll find a parking ticket on our car at Marquam Nature Park when we get back because we weren't able to complete the trek in 2 hrs with time for a rest & snack at the top. Council Crest is lovely & deserves sufficient time to enjoy.
