Making the Time For a Hike at Powell Butte

Powell Butte is a true gem for Portland outdoor enthusiasts.  I have blogged about it before, but it bears repeating.  While there are more serious trails nearby for both hikers and mountain bikers, nowhere in the middle of Portland can you find a combination of different ecosystems, moderately challenging trails, and great views.  As always, free time is at a premium for me, so Powell Butte was an easy choice for a quick hike on a nice day.  It was breezy in the meadow, but as you can see, it was a great day for a walk.

  1. Sounds like a great spot. We’re on the exact opposite side of the country (SW Florida) but the Pac NW is on the list for the future! Thanks for sharing.
