A42 Rocky Mount Ride

This ride takes you to two of the three extinct volcanoes within the Portland city limits. The third is Powell Butte which has unpaved pathways perfect for mountain biking. The two buttes on this ride are Rocky Butte and Mount Tabor. Rocky Butte offers a sweeping 360 degree view of Portland and surrounding areas. Mount Tabor has a popular sunset view of the city of Portland.

Rocky Butte is an extinct volcanic cinder cone butte. The ride up is not as steep as it seems when you are at the bottom of the hill looking up. At the summit is the Joseph Wood Hill Park which is constructed of stone and resembles a fortress. Hill established the Hill Military Academy which is now home to the City Bible College at the base of the hill. Several of the bunkers have been renovated and are used by the college today. In the park at the summit old fashioned lights sit atop the hand carved stone wall and illuminate the park at night.   Rocky Butte is a favorite of mountain climbers and there are over 150 climbing routes available. From the summit you can see the airport, the Columbia River Gorge, downtown Portland, and Vancouver.
