About This Trail

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

Mount Tabor is the name of a volcanic cinder cone in the middle of SE Portland. It’s a popular area for families because the trails are easy and there’s a great park in the middle of it. This is a very stroller friendly area. Also good for dogs on leashes.

This park is great for new parents because you can stroller and hike. There are picnic areas, a dog off-leash area, natural surface and paved paths, a playground, a performance stage, tennis, volleyball and basketball courts.

Also a great place to have a go at using a jog stroller with a baby because the roads are mainly car free and mellow. Finish a hike off here with a session in the playground if you have toddlers and preK.

Beautiful views of Portland. Absolutely no way you can get lost here. This is a perfect hike for new families. There are tiny climbs but lots of loops through the trees and a great playground to finish off a hike.
