Mount Tabor is one of only four extinct volcanoes to lay within the limits of a major American city. The volcanic cinder cone was named by Plympton Kelly, the son of Oregon City pioneer Clinton Kelly, after a land feature in Israel. In total the park provides 400 feet of elevation gain, and you have the option of climbing by bike, going halfway by car, or by taking the stairs. It is pretty common to see runners taking laps by bounding to the top via the stairs for an evening or weekend workout.
The 196-acre park also has a couple of playgrounds, an outdoor amphitheater, a basketball court, tennis courts, mountain bike trails, running trails and a dog park.
