“A short forested trail leading to a scenic meadow on Volcanic Butte with switchbacks.”
— Adopt These Trails!
Mountain biking is discouraged on these trails, for the park is not large enough to support mountain bike use.
Features: Views — Wildflowers — Wildlife
On this trail, there are several switchbacks with exposed roots, rocks, branches, and other obstacles. Be aware of these as they are dangerous for ankles.
Cooks Butte Park contains 42 acres of soft and easy surface trails on a volcanic butte that are great for runs. Trails in this area can be accessed from several points. Trail heads can be found on Delenka Lane, West View Drive, Shipley Drive, Palisades Crest Drive, and Stevens Meadows - off Atherton Drive.
Flora & Fauna
Many beautiful blooms may be found in the summertime, from dahlias, to sunflowers, and zinnias.
