There are nice short hikes here that are Easy-Medium. You can run, hike, or just walk slowly to the top of Council Crest Park.

Spent a lovely leisurely 2-1/2 hours hiking the Marquam Trail to the Council Crest Trail and back. My husband and I are 60 years young and this was a perfect match for our abilities. Delightfully cool in the shade and dappled light of the trees....More
