Please respect the outdoors by practicing Leave No Trace. Learn more about how to apply the principles of Leave No Trace on your next outdoor adventure here.

Few experiences in the great outdoors are as restorative and soothing as watching a beautiful sunset.  Luckily, no matter where you live you usually don't have to travel too far to catch the daily phenomenon.

For those in Portland, few places offer a more dramatic and panoramic vista point for watching sunsets than at Mocks Crest Property in the fittingly named Overlook neighborhood.  Other than soft grass and a great view, the "pocket park" offers few amenities, so pack well and be sure to include a picnic blanket.  Also, during the mid-summer days the park can fill up quickly, so show up early to get the best seat along the edge of the park's 200 foot high bluff.
