This short loop to the top of this extinct lava dome in Clackamas County is perfect for the whole family. The trail winds through beautiful forest and is filled with interpretive signs about the environment you are walking through and the flora and fauna you may see along the way.

Nice Trail Run. I showed 600 ft elevation gain and 3.3 miles. Nothing special but I’d do it again.

How can I get alltrails to stop loading the uber app when I ask for directions? I have tried resetting the defaults but it's not working. If there is no way to disconnect the two apps, I will delete Alltrails.

Small but beautiful. Great for trail run. You can extend by taking more than one loop. Lush. Nice refuge on a hot day.

Excellent urban walk. Only complaint is that you never escape road noise from below. Would do it again.

Perfect early evening hike after work on a hot day. Just enough shade and a nice breeze.

Nice quick hike if you're in the city. No amazing view at the top though. Trail is in good condition.

Trail is in good condition, did the park loop trail and only one small area (about 10 feet of area) was just a little muddy (easy to walk around). Saw a deer and some squirrels. About 10 total cars were there when we started.

Beautiful rainforest tucked in the city. The trail is a bit muddy in the winter months as to be expected

Beautiful New Years day hike. We saw 3 deer, and the sunny winter light was lovely. Easy.

Came here for a quick hike while staying in Portland. Clean and trails were very well taken care of. Pretty good elevation for what it is! Fun

Small hike, with reasonable elevation gain. Best done on a warm dry spring day when the flowers are in bloom.

lots of uphill from the Mather side a lot of up and down hill on the Sunnyside side. lots of tree roots in rock from the trail, but otherwise very well maintained. busy with the after-work crowd even in the winter

Another of Metro’s well-run parks. Underutilized; generally you will only see a handful or less of people. Trails are very well marked. Somewhat hilly but nowhere strenuous. There have been small improvements since I last visited a few months ago, including a short prairie trail and new signage. A great nature oasis if you find yourself in the area. Not sure why it’s marked only good for certain parts of the year—it’s fine year round. I’ve visited more in November and December than any other month.
