Pittock Mansion Hike


If you aren’t so much of a hiking enthusiast but don’t mind a good work out on an odd day (or an odd work out on a good day – whichever), here’s my suggestion for you – Pittock Mansion. Nestled in the  forest park only a few mins (drive) from downtown Portland, this hike offers what may well be few of the most exciting views of the city for common public. Alternately you can also drive all the way up to the mansion (use Burnside).

The hike reaches an elevation gain of around 900 feet in 2.5 miles and takes around 45-60 mins in summer when the trail is clear of puddles. I recommend visiting the mansion in different seasons (and varied times of the day) to enjoy a beauty called Portland, however my personal favorite is fall. A must see…

  1. I have been surfing on-line greater than three hours lately, but I never discovered any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty price enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers
    made good content as you probably did, the internet shall be a lot more helpful than
    ever before.
