This Mount Tabor loop hike is a moderate 1.4 mile hike in the middle of Portland Oregon. The hike encompasses a couple of different trails - mainly the Blue Trail, a small section of the Green Trail, and some small sections that run along the road heading up the hill as well. Parking can be found at the entrance to the park directly on the road and you can pick up this trail on the first hairpin turn where the road starts heading up the hill.
History: Mount Tabor is a dormant volcanic vent that lies in the southeast section of Portland. In 1912, years after reservoirs and a public park were developed on it, the volcanic history of Mount Tabor was discovered. The peak of Mount Tabor is 636 feet in elevation and from different points at the top you can see Mt Hood and downtown Portland.
Sights: Mount Hood and downtown Portland, Oregon.
Type: Out-and-back mixed with a loop near the peak of Mount Tabor.
MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller / Admin. As the main contributor and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my experiences from hikes and backpacking trips on MyHikes for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.
It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, and site maintainance . I simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.
