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.

Before you leave...

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 (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups 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, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
