    Hills around Powell Butte and Mt. Scott

    Went up to the top of Powell Butte for the first time yesterday. Great views. While at the top I noticed lots of hills nearby that look like they would supply tons of great climbs. Curious if anyone here has tackled them and perhaps has a favorite route to recommend?

    That looks like the ticket. They did a super thorough job mapping it out. 50 miles and 7,200 feet elevation. My legs are already burning. But now that I know it's there, I can't resist. Thanks a ton for the link.
