This hike is our faster paced 2nd Saturday Hike at a 2.5 mph pace and is usually 5-7 miles in length.  We have some stairs, tight trails, a few roots and steep spots on this hike. Our hike will head us up from the parking lot to Council Crest along the historic trolly route.  We will take in the summit views, and wander flower-lined streets heading into Marquam Park. Now on the Sunnyside trail we will go down a ways and then head back up the Broadway trail and continue with nice sidewalks and flowery yards on our return to the Parking lot up at the top of  SW Dosch Rd.  A thanks to Terry Kotz who has designed and will lead this route. You too can be a hike designer and leader — just get in touch with us,  share your ideas, and together we can turn them into a great hike for all of us to enjoy.

Bring a snack, water, good footwear, sunglasses, and rain gear as appropriate. Dress and prepare for the weather on hike day. Children and well-behaved dogs on leash are welcome. For health reasons, there is no smoking on SWTrails walks and hikes. If you need to leave the hike early just let a hike leader know. We try to find a restroom along the way, but it’s not always possible to do so.

Looking forward to seeing you there with us.
