This Just Might Be The Most Beautiful Hike In All Of Portland

Portland is known for its immense natural beauty. There is perhaps no better way to enjoy the city in all its glory than to escape into the forest for a bit to see it in its natural state. Clocking in at just over 3.3 miles, the Council Crest hike has an elevation gain of 820 feet, and this is just what is needed for the amazing view you earn when you get to the top. Head to Marquam Nature Park to get started on this lovely journey that will take you to the heights of the city.
