This is a nice, green area to hang out, but there really isn't anything to it beyond the incredible views. The views are totally worth it, and so is the piece and quiet it offers.

Park overlooking Portland area and surrounding mountains at the top of Council Crest. Site of an early amusement park with a trolley up the hill to the top. Great for relaxing, picnicing, viewing and jogging trails.

We happened upon this while walking the 4T and I'm glad we did. It had a great view, and an interesting history according to the marker.

We were so fortunate to visit Council Crest on a clear, sunny day. There aren't many places like this where you can see so many volcanoes from one spot. Loved it
