Scouters Mountain Nature Park

S.E. Boy Scout Lodge Road and Southeast 147th Ave., Happy Valley

Amenities: Parking, Restrooms, Shelter, Picnic Area, Trails

Rising above Happy Valley, Scouters Mountain Nature Park offers a lovely vantage point to admire Mount Hood and enjoy a shady forest. Climb the steep, fir-lined road to the parking lot atop this extinct lava dome. From there, you can walk a loop trail or enjoy lunch under a welcoming picnic shelter.

If you ever visited the Boy Scouts lodge that used to stand here, you might recognize salvaged pieces. Although the land is now a public park, its spirit of adventure remains.

Scouters Mountain Nature Park was protected and opened through a partnership with Metro, the City of Happy Valley and North Clackamas Parks and Recreation District.
