The route is a gentle walk around Portland's beautiful Mt. Tabor Park, including an optional climb to the summit.


See important parking details, below.


There is plenty of time for the whole family to enjoy the breathtaking vistas, fun activities, and interesting education stations along the route. 

Both route options start and finish near check-in at Picnic Shelter A. If you are not up for the 1.25 mile option, you can have a seat, enjoy activities at the base, and celebrate with starters and finishers.  


Walkers have two options:

2 Mile Loop: to the summit and back

- OR -

1.25 Mile Loop without the summit climb 

Picnic Shelter A, check-in, bag/shirt pickup
