Interim Improvements
The Clatsop Butte Trail is an interim 8’ wide wood chip path that gently meanders atop a butte within the City of Portland while offering grand views of downtown Portland, Mt. Hood, Mt. Adams and Mount St. Helens. The project work included a 0.6 mile long wood chip trail using ADA engineered wood chips, a park site sign, trail signs and two benches located to take advantage of the great views.
