Powell Butte Trail Changes

Post by kmcdade » August 5th, 2014, 3:52 pm

Powell Butte has changed the names of some trails (plus some routes may have changed). The most current trail map is here (PDF): http://www.portlandoregon.gov/water/article/477460.

Specifically for the Powell Butte Perimeter Loop hike:

The Goldfinch Trail is currently closed; it is in the construction zone.
Old Holgate Trail is now Holgate Lane.
The Meadowland Trail is now Meadowland Lane.
To get to the Elderberry Trail, you now need to go right (west) on Pipeline Lane, and then left (southwest) on the Elderberry Trail.
Cedar Grove Trail retains its name all the way to the Pioneer Orchard/Hawthorn Trail junction. There's no Blacktail Deer trail.
Orchard Loop Trail is now Summit Lane.
--Kathleen. Or K-Mac. As in KMC, because that's what people have taken to calling me here. :-)

@kmcdade: Many thanks! I've put in a link to the temporary maps on all the main Powell Butte hike pages. When the construction is over, I'll have to get up there and hike all over to see what needs to be fixed in the directions.
