If you need to incorporate some hills into your walk, run, or cycling, and you'd like to do it relatively close to downtown, and you'd like it to be gorgeous and wooded, with views of the city, the bridges, Mt. St. Helens and Mt Hood, Terwilliger Blvd was made just for you.

This route features wide sidewalks for walkers, runners, skaters, skateboarders and the like, as well as bike lanes on both side of the Boulevard. It is largely wooded, so it's generally a bit cooler than walking/running downtown.

Some fun features include the staircase to the old Veterans Hospital and the Portland Health Course. There are also benches, several water fountains, and a bathroom.

If you're coming from downtown, start at Duniway Park, just south of PSU. Walk west, past the lilac garden, and then up the hill at the aptly named Terwilliger.

It's not a terribly long scenic byway: roundtrip from Duniway Park to Capitol Highway and back is about 5 miles. Proceed on to Barbur Blvd, and roundtrip, you have 6 and 2/3 miles.
