“beautiful forest abundant with wildlife”
Powell Butte Nature Park is an extinct volcano and is Portland's second-largest park after Forest Park.
A large system of trails covers this 600-ac volcanic butte, looping through scrub/savanna on the top, to dark forested flanks that host species for the novice and advanced birder alike. Specialty birds include nesting Lazuli Bunting and Western Kingbird in summer, Short-eared Owl in winter, and a variety of raptors in all seasons. The summit, 350 ft above the surrounding city, can be reached via a 0.75 mi paved trail from the parking area. From E Powell Blvd, between Portland and Gresham, turn S on 162nd Ave and drive 0.5 mi up the short, steep road to the gravel parking area. Transit: Take TriMet Bus 9-Powell to SE Powell & 164th Ave, walk 0.1 miles W to NE 162nd.
