Portland, Oregon

Council Crest, Part 1: Terwilliger Blvd.

A variation on the Terwilliger Boulevard trail detailed earlier, this run culminates at Council Crest, the highest peak of the Tualatin Mountain range at 1,071 feet. (We stop a little short at 976 feet.) Running through Portland State University and the shaded part of Terwilliger Boulevard, this route gives a taste of downtown, urban crowds, and the outdoor, natural beauty that surrounds Portland. Both Mt. St. Helens & Mt. Hood can be seen from the top of Council Crest. Once at the top, feel free to explore some of the Marquam Trails.
