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.
