We LOVE Mt. Tabor
Our family likes to go on a lot of adventures. However, we find ourselves going back to Mt. Tabor often. Each time feels familiar yet it is a completely different experience.
Some Cool Things About Mt. Tabor
It is a volcanic cinder cone – so that’s pretty neat.
The off leash area is incredible for your adventure dog. Though, we just discovered this gem, a month after we lost our Maddox. So that is a bummer for us. However, for the rest of you that like to bring your dog with on your adventures, this is a fantastic dog part to let them roam and play in the trees.
The park is great for the kiddos. It is a mostly shaded area with playground equipment. Near by is a basketball court. There are also places that are covered to enjoy a picnic with your family and friends.
If you are into running stairs… it will be a happy day for you if you want to find them and get your workout on. You will not be alone.
Lots of different hiking paths.
I don’t think we have ever had the same experience. Every time we go, we may come upon a place we have been before, however the way we get there is usually different and we love that. This helps it feel like a new adventure every time.
The views are gorgeous. You can see Mount Hood and Mount St. Helens along with incredible views of Portland.
For the risk takers,
you can skate board or bike down the long winding roads.
When you make it to the top of Mt. Tabor you will find other people enjoying nature. Sometimes we see people practicing martial arts while others are enjoying their book while eating their packed lunch. No matter what, we have always smiled once we are at the top. With the view, it would be impossible not to.
There are bathroom facilities here and there throughout the area.
And, it’s free!! For anyone on a budget or not, this is a great place to spend the day. You can pack a lunch or snacks to bring with you. Walk around and enjoy the view and people that you may meet along the way.
