Pittock Mansion
Once home to Henry and Georgiana Pittock, Portland’s original power couple, the Pittock Mansion sits on 46 acres (18.6 hectares) of land and contains exhibits featuring artwork and artifacts from the early 1900s. The house is perched on a hill 1,000 feet (305 meters) above downtown and offers sweeping views of Portland and the Cascade Range. 

The Basics
Inside the French Renaissance–style mansion you can peruse the rooms and admire artworks such as glass sculptures, paintings, and handcrafted tiles. Outside, stroll through the grounds (known as Pittock Acres Park) and explore a large network of hiking trails. 

Many full-day and half-day Portland city tours include a visit to Pittock Mansion along with other local attractions such as Nob Hill, the Pearl District, and Columbia Gorge National Scenic Area. Small-group tours offer a personalized experience, while some excursions also include round-trip transportation from downtown hotels. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Pittock Mansion is a must-see for art, culture, and history lovers, and for keen hikers. 
  • Snacks, drinks, and period-inspired souvenirs are available for purchase in the museum store. Remember to enjoy your food before entering the museum.
  • The house has a designated wheelchair-accessible entrance and elevator, although the Gate Lodge is not accessible.
  • Parking is available on-site. 

How to Get There
Pittock Mansion is located near Arlington Heights on NW Pittock Drive, roughly 15 minutes by road from downtown Portland. From downtown, take the Trimet 20-Burnside/Stark bus to Beaverton TC and walk half a mile (0.8 kilometers) to the mansion. You can also get there by taxi, rental car, or as part of a guided tour. 

When to Get There
The mansion is open from February through December and is closed on Thanksgiving and Christmas. Summer is a lovely time to enjoy the grounds, when the weather is typically warm and sunny. During the Christmas season, the mansion’s festive holiday decorations are a must-see. 

The Pittock Family Legacy 
Henry Pittock’s business empire included the Oregonian newspaper, while Georgiana championed women’s rights and helped foster the city’s annual Rose Festival. In 1974, the house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places and now attracts over 800,000 annual visitors.

Forest Park Urban Hiking Tour

Forest Park Urban Hiking Tour

star-5
When tour guests asks us, "what one thing should I not miss in Portland," we pick the 4.5- to 5-mile (8-9 km) hike in Forest Park. No matter what the season, hiking in the park is entering another world right on the borders (and through the fabric) of the city. We offer two daily departures, both with varied terrain and about 900 ft elevation gain. The morning hike is focused around a classic Northwest Portland experience, and ends at the International Rose Test Garden, the Forest Park Experience (9 a.m. to noon). The afternoon hike starts at Goose Hollow, weaves through the neighborhoods and up into the park, the Goose Hollow to the Forest (1 to 5 p.m.). Both pass the iconic spots; Japanese Garden, Pittock Mansion, and Witch's Castle; but take a different approach to the forest. Being in Forest Park is to be immersed a fluid place that exists both in and out of time. In the forest—within minutes leaving the street—you can forget, or wonder at the fact that you are still in a city.
