The Portland Heights neighborhood towers above southwest Portland providing spectacular views and close proximity to downtown. This area was virtually inaccessible until a cable car was built in 1890 that provided all-weather access to this highly desirable location. (see photo above)
In 1906, the electric streetcar provided even more reliable service to Portland Heights and continued on up to Council Crest.
Portland Heights became one of the most desirable neighborhoods in the city, with a mix of spacious and elegant early 20th century homes.
BE AWARE!: This is a strenuous 3 mile urban hike with steep climbs and descents. Wear hike-appropriate footwear and attire. Parking in the neighborhood is problematic. Goose Hollow is well served by public transit.
