Portland, Oregon: Volcano in City Limits

More of a pleasant hilltop than a belching howitzer of Hell.

Tabor Summit Dr., Portland, OR
On the east side of downtown. Take Hawthorne Blvd east to 60th (there's a T-intersection at 55th, go to the right to continue on Hawthorne). Turn left on 60th, go 3 blocks to Salmon, turn right and this leads you right to the top.
Varies, and the gate to the summit is closed to cars (but not people) at times. (Call to verify) Local health policies may affect hours and access.
