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. There is a small visitor center and bathrooms above the amphitheater. Accessibility: This trail is partially paved and partially dirt. The width is typically at least three feet. There are multiple steep sections on this trail with a grade estimated over 12% that may make it not navigable for manual wheelchairs and strollers. From the pictures there appear to be some areas with staircases. There is a shorter more accessible trail which is all a non-vehicular paved surface and mostly a grade of less than 5% that can be viewed here: https://www.alltrails.com/trail/us/oregon/mount-tabor-paved-trailShow more
