Council Crest ClimbHistoric postcard of Council Crest
Friday, October 26
12:30 p.m .- 3:30 p.m. (Meet at 12:30 p.m., leave at 1:00 p.m.. Event may last longer than three hours.)
*Bring money for transit fare*

"Take an 'urban hike' up to Council Crest, highest point in the city (1,070 feet!) Use secret stairways and paths and not-so-secret sidewalks to get to the top while learning about the interesting history of the area (note: no actual rock-type-climbing involved). There will be great views of the city along the way, and the top you may be able to peep four different volcanoes! After ascending to the Crest, we'll then descend via the Marquam Trail to OHSU where we'll hop on the Tram to the Waterfront. Possible exploration of South Waterfront if time/interest allows.

We'll also stop at a market along the way for snacks. 

Please wear some good walkin'/hikin' shoes, as the walk surfaces will be a mix of dirt and paved, with some stairs thrown in. 

Please note: Route will end in South Waterfront where folks can take the Streetcar back into downtown. Bring appropriate transit fare ($2.50 for TriMet, $1 for streetcar only.)"
