Stark-Belmont Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Where do ordinary, average Portlanders hang out? Well, there’s really no such thing as a typical Portlander, despite what a certain TV sketch-comedy series might have you believe, but this walk takes in a couple of the residential neighborhoods that have a very Southeast Portland feel: moderate-size bungalows, nicely maintained yards with the occasional urban veggie farm or chicken coop, quiet tree-lined streets, chillaxed bars and restaurants where you can show up in jeans and not be looked at sideways. The houses are more modest as the street numbers get smaller (not counting one particularly ostentatious home we’ll pause to gawk at). This is a nice walk to do in late afternoon or early evening, when it’s not quite dark but the street life on Belmont is starting to pick up."
