Oregon's "Rose City" is both green, as in eco-conscious, and green, as in lush, a river edged port city that's also a laid-back multi-cultural urban center with forest and mountains a stone's throw from downtown attractions.
The Rooster Rock Trail (#3399) is a moderate to difficult 2.1 mile trail. The trail climbs slowly for 0.9 miles, then rises steeply to Rooster Rock. Rooster Rock, an enormous pillar of andesite and basalt, is popular with rock climbers. If you are an adventurous climber, the wooden remains of a Forest Service lookout, abandoned in 1963, can be found by scrambling to the top.
