Getting There

Take a ride or a walk around this beautiful city park which holds 3 different reservoirs for Portland Although there is no swimming in the reservoirs for obvious reasons, this park has plenty of other things to offer the whole family including picnic areas, a dog park, monuments, and public art, and even volleyball and tennis areas.

Take I-85 east to 60th ave from downtown Portland at the 58th Ave Exit. You will need to take a left onto Glisan then a right onto 60th. Take 60th to Belmont and turn left onto it. Go east on Belmont up the hill to 69th and Belmont where you will take a right onto 69th and head up the hill into the park.

Hillier than I thought. Lots of great trails to just wander on. Pretty great.

Very easy trail with a great view at the top. Can get busy at all times since it’s in the middle of the city. Thankfully it’s a big park so you can still keep your distance while enjoying the view.

Like most city parks I’ve been to in the Portland area, this one did not disappoint. Its a lovely park with numerous trails and various routes to take. There were several trail runners, hikers, and cyclists on the Sunday July morning that I arrived. Most were practicing safe distance & westing masks. This park has a lot of different activities & views such as a basketball & tennis courts, visitor center, lake, dam/reservoir, numerous inclines & declines, etc. In my opinion, its a tranquil & serene place to get a short or long workout. Enjoy!

It’s a great place but I find it hard to follow the trails. Difficult to tell where they are.

Route are very nice for walking, there is some challenging uphills at time, but there is a bigger loop you can do as well if you’d prefer. Took me under 30 minutes to complete so perfect for a mid day walk/hike

Had just enough time for a third hike before dark, so went somewhere familiar. This Mt. Tabor route is just fine save one fatal flaw. For no apparent reason it is ruined by a very odd, unnecessary and nearly impossible bushwhack between two trails. I marked it with a waypoint on my recording and will submit a correction to the route. No one in their right mind would try to climb the insanely steep section that is completely over grown, and with dense, prickly blackberry vines no less. Ok, well I did it (determination to finish), but in the span of that ten feet climb it was the worst bushwhack I've done all year (and I no doubt looked like a FREAK)! That's saying a lot since no-trail hikes have been my passion this year. Probably anyone who has completed this route altered it when seeing this ridiculous spot.

Peaceful and scenic this park has several trails, playgrounds, gazebos, benches and more. Great views of the city from the top!

6/3/20 - Beautiful park with amazing views of downtown and the mountains, but review is specifically for the curated trail. There are too many unmarked paths that intersect to make navigating very difficult, especially if the GPS isn't on point like I experienced. There was also a point that it instructed to switch from the main road to a walking trail on a shortcut that didn't exist, causing us to turn around. Would have had a better experience just exploring the park without the app.

Easy place to take a leisurely stroll! Had a lot of mini trails so it was easy to have some time away from other people. Only rated it a 4/5 because it wasn’t very challenging at all for a hike.

My 6yo and I went for the first time during Covid mandate. All trails were open. The only things closed were parking lot and playground. My son was riding his bike. We never actually found the trail suggested here for biking. We still had road to ride on, but there was a lot of uphill. I had to push my son up a lot. Called for a good workout. I loved the view of the city and that there were so many paths. It would take more than a day to go through all of them.

It was good place to go in the city if you want to explore several paths and get a great view of the city. There were places where it was muddy and slippery but nothing major. Definitely worth an explore!

Great place to relax and enjoy a good walk. Many people bring their dogs. It's really peaceful. My only complaint is that some of the hiking trails are overgrown and not clearly marked. They could put more trash cans and dog poop bags afound too. Otherwise great place!

Nice trails (paved and unpaved in the middle of the city.) Lots of shade. Some changes in elevation. Lots of people even in the middle of the weekday - everyone friendly. Dogs being walked on leash. Some bikes. Very clean. Some picnic benches, a playground and bathrooms. I’d walk here again.

There was a section of the trail that was off piste up a black berry bush track... It is about 3 quarters of the way (or first quarter depending on the direction you start) through the trail and it is a square ended sort of rhino hook piece of the track... Mt Tabor is great, bit of traffic about at 9am but a good quick one for the doggo....

basically just a walk. pretty and seems more like a basic park. PNW beauty makes everything better, though

I give it five stars due to its proximity to the city. You can’t beat an elevated trail park in the middle of the city that ALMOST makes you feel away from it all. Decent Restrooms, basketball court are bonuses.
