Quick trip to Powell butte.

Great easy trail paved all the way through. Perfect for beginners and people who want beautiful mountain views or an awesome sunrise spot.

Excellent trail. Great views of four snow capped peaks at the top (St. Helens, Adams, Hood, and Jefferson). It’s a mostly paved trial that is a gradual uphill. Wide open space that has constant exquisite views. Lots of birds out to see as well. Especially on a clear day, this is a fantastic getaway. Only downside is that it gets a little crowded and parking can be limited, so I’d recommend going early. But totally worth it!

Great little hike to get the day started! The main mountain view trail really ends nicely with a place for you to relax and take in the sights.

There where some steep hills but it was 95% paved but I was able to maneuver my stroller just fine on the unpaved areas. My biggest complaints were no toilet paper in the bathroom and the trails are very thin and bike riders were going so fast that they almost ran over my 5 year old... overall it was a good walk with the kids and they enjoyed it.. the kids found lots of bugs and even a bunnie!!

Really good for beginners! Cool Mountain View area as well.

There are longer loops with more variety in the park, but this is the shortest and easiest path to the summit. There were tons of yellow flowers in the fields. It was hot, but I survived.
