Council Crest–Washington Park Loop Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The Council Crest–Washington Park Loop combines the thrill of riding through the streets of “Bike Town USA” with the exercise and exhilaration of a thigh-burning climb to the highest point in Portland. Along the way you’ll take in arguably the best view in the city and ride through iconic Washington Park. If you had one bike ride to check out Portland proper, this should be it.
Starting in Pioneer Courthouse Square (PCS) in downtown Portland, you’ll essentially be checking out the best of Portland by bicycle. As the ride begins, you’ll have the opportunity to pedal your way through a downtown area that
caters to bicyclists. With clearly marked bike routes, wide bike lanes, and bike boxes, it’s a joy to explore a city laid out for folks on two wheels."
