About 3 hours.


Paved sidewalks with some moderate hills.


Mostly easy.


Sturdy, well-fitting running/walking shoes are a must on Portland’s notoriously uneven, poorly maintained sidewalks and trails. Walkers beware!
Portland weather can change in a matter of minutes, and it’s not unusual to need several varying levels of warmth and rain coverage on a given walk. Dress in layers and pack a collapsible umbrella and drinking water.

Coffee & Lunch

Best bets for coffee and pastries and lunch are  Flying Elephants, Elephant’s Deli,  and Jola Cafe.
