Another favorite running spot of mine is Mt. Tabor. This is a good spot for hill intervals and softer trail running right in the middle of SE PDX. A straight-shot to the top takes under 15 minutes but there are ample trails to extend the ascent. If you’re feeling crazy, check out the brutal staircase at the northeast entrance to the park. If you can run up that all the way to the top without stopping, then maybe you should be in Rio, not PDX!
