Enjoy outstanding views of four snowcapped volcanoes, scads of emerald dormant lava domes, and pastoral rolling countryside, all from this extinct volcano right within the Portland city limits. Easily amble up a paved path to a century-old walnut orchard atop the butte. Then languidly loop the summit, taking in soothing vistas in every direction. Miles of radiating trails invite further exploring.
