Singletrack options can be a bit scarce within Portland’s city limits. One beaming exception is Powell Butte. It might not provide the miles of singletrack offered over at Sandy Ridge, but there’s enough variety and sharp descents to hold your attention. Trails transition quickly from open meadows into tight, western red cedar–lined singletrack. Unlike some other city parks, most of the trails at Powell Butte are bike friendly.
