The Staircases At Mt. Tabor Park In Oregon Takes You To A Beautiful City View

“Hey, we should go to that city park that used to be a volcano…” says almost no one in the world. There are extinct volcanos all over the planet, but in the United States, just six are located within the limits of a city. Oregon has two such volcanos – one in Portland; the other in Bend.

Mt. Tabor Park in Portland sits right on a volcano, and you can climb several series of staircases to the summit.
