We are headed to Council Crest this Sunday (Father’s Day) June 19th. Join us for this almost 6 mile hike to Portland’s highest point. We will meet at the Marquam trail off Terwilliger at 9 am. Here’s what portlandhikers.org has to say about this trail:
Winding its way through a patchwork of city parks and green spaces, the Marquam Trail stretches over five miles through peaceful, secluded forests in Southwest Portland. As part of the city’s 40-Mile Loop trail system it connects the Terwilliger Trail in the south with the Wildwood Trail to the north.
This will be my first time hiking this trail. To get to the trail head I plan on following the directions on the Portland Hiker’s Field Guide:
From SW Terwilliger and Sam Jackson Park Rd (by Duniway Park) drive 1.4 miles south on Terwilliger to the trailhead. From Terwilliger and Capitol Hwy drive north 1.0 miles to the trailhead. There are small parking areas on either side of Terwilliger just south of the trailhead.
If you are interested in riding with me from the southeast please call or text me by Saturday night 503-705-4762.
