The Mazamas offers a variety of classes for all ability levels. Learn new skills in mountaineering, rock climbing, first aid, ski mountaineering, and more.
Plan to meet at the Zoo at the 4t trail kiosk, near the east end of the MAX elevator. You can buy an all-day MAX pass here—good for the MAX and the trolley.
From the Zoo, we will follow the 4T signs on the forested trail. The Trail is about 4.1 miles long and has an elevation gain of about 800 ft. Dress for the weather and wear good shoes—there is always a chance for mud. With some luck and good weather, we could have great views from the top of Council Crest. This hike will take about 3 hours. Bring water and snacks for yourself.
From the trail, we will emerge at OHSU. From there, we will take the Tram down to the south waterfront. This will take about 3 minutes.
The next "t" is for the Trolley, which we will take from the waterfront to downtown Portland, where we will transfer to the MAX Train for the trip back to the zoo.
We can pick a place for lunch on this hike. OHSU has a nice cafeteria or there are many fine places downtown.
Hope for good weather!
