About the Event
Ah, Portland's famous "4T Trail Loop"! What the heck is it though? We will take a trail, a tram, a trolley, and then finally a train, and experience a unique and multi-modal way to enjoy our fair city.
We'll start with a brisk hike uphill among the trees from the Oregon Zoo to Council Crest Park—at 1,073 feet, the highest point in the city—and then enjoy an easy stroll down to Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU), where you will board the Portland Aerial Tram and glide 3,300 linear feet downhill—in 3 minutes!—to the riverfront. From there, we will board the trolley (aka the Portland Streetcar) and ride to the heart of downtown Portland. We'll meander through some downtown shops, restaurants, and food carts and then hop on the MAX light rail train back to the start to complete the loop.
INCLUDED: all transportation fees.
NOT INCLUDED: any food or beverage purchased.
COST: $35 per person, or $30 per person when registering two.
Meet at the Oregon Zoo parking lot at 8:30 AM. We'll return to this location and should be finished by 2 PM at latest.
LEVEL OF DIFFICULTY: LOW
