Hike to Rocky Butte

The park at the top of Rocky Butte presents one of the finest views of the Portland area, especially to the north and east.  The geology and history of this promontory add to the uniquely Portland appeal of this beautiful site. Most of this walk is on blacktop surface, but there is a steep ascent through the woods on a dirt trail. Be prepared for a rather strenous climb in this section of the hike. 

Hike and viewing lasts about two hours and starts promptly at time indicated in posting.

Leashed dogs welcome.

Cost is $10 for this narrated tour. You can pay in advance on-line or cash on site.

    Clouds parted just in time for a great walk to the fine view from atop Rocky Butte.

      Eric and all,
      Very sorry I missed yesterday's meetup. Thought I could fly in SF and still take the hike, but there were hours of airport delay. Looking forward to the next opportunity.

    Hi folks, Weather.com shows a slow, steady declining chance of rain through the late afternoon. We will do the hike, probably staying on blacktop surface to avoid muddy conditions in the woods. We'll meet in the parking lot of the Jason Lee School. Under the canopy at the entry if need be. Come prepared for rainy conditions! See you there!
