Council Crest

I enjoy hiking in Portland Heights in the springtime. There are multiple marked urban trails.

The hikes follow streets, public stairways, alleyways and trails through greenways.

On this day I followed Southwest Urban Trail no. 6 and the Marquam trail to Council Crest. At 1,071 feet it is the highest point in the City.

There is always a nice combination of domestic and wild flowers, birds and small animals to see. And, as the year unfolds, different flowers come into bloom.
