Driving Directions

From downtown Portland:

Drive south on Broadway and cross I-405. Veer left and turn right at the junction with 6th Avenue.

From this junction drive 0.3 miles (6th Avenue becomes Terwilliger Boulevard).

At the junction with Sam Jackson Park Road at Duniway Park, keep right and drive 0.2 miles.

Where Sam Jackson makes a sharp bend to the left uphill, turn right at the sign for Marquam Nature Park Shelter.

You can get directions to this trailhead using Google Maps.

Alternatives to Driving

Tri-met Bus #8 and Tri-met Bus #68 run on Terwilliger Boulevard and stop at the junction with Sam Jackson Park Road.

Tri-met Bus #61, Tri-met Bus #64, and Tri-met Bus #65 all make a loop around the OHSU - Veterans Hospital Campuses. You can walk to the Shelter Trailhead using the Connor Trail or the Marquam Trail from near the bus loop. None of these buses has weekend service, however.
