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.
