4T = Train, Trail, Tram, & Trolly
5T = Train, Trail, Tram, Trolly, & Tunes... Noon Tunes that is!
Looking for a great way to spend the morning? Take a hike on the 4T & join me for Noon Tunes Summer Concert Series.
Take the Train (or drive) and meet me at 9:00am outside the MAX Zoo Station (at the surface - see the picture below), near the 4T Trail signs. From the Zoo we will hike the 4.1 mile Forest Trail (I am a slower hike leader, my pace is approx. 2MPH so this portion of the 4T should take us approx. 2 hrs). Enjoy a hike among the trees from the Zoo to Council Crest (highest elevation w/in city limits of PDX) and then to the Oregon Health Sciences University (OHSU), where you will glide down the hill in the aerial Tram (a 5 minute ride) overlooking scenic views of the river and SW Portland, and then board the Trolley to the heart of Downtown (a 20 minute ride). We get off the Trolly at SW 10th & SW Yamhill St. We now have options.... do you get on the Train and head back to the Zoo/your vehicle/home... or do you head over to Pioneer Courthouse Square for Noon Tunes before heading home? You can make the decision when we get there but my mind's already made up, I'm heading to check out Noon Tunes! It's summertime! Enjoy Portland!
