This short loop to the top of this extinct lava dome in Clackamas County is perfect for the whole family. The trail winds through beautiful forest and is filled with interpretive signs about the environment you are walking through and the flora and fauna you may see along the way.
The park is located east of I-205 and south of Sunnyside Road. From SE Sunnybrook Blvd, turn south on 97th ave and follow it until it becomes Mather Road. The entrance to the park is on the left at the end of Mather Road.
Park here and head out on the loop trail. When you get to the trail split you can go in either direction but I counter clockwise seems the best direction. Check out the photos attached here of the sites you will see along the trail.
