The Powell Butte trail packet is our ode to two of our very favorite things: Volcanoes and Grassland Habitats. What better place than an extinct volcano for kids to explore nature at both its grandest and most intimate?
We chose a 1.3 mile trail loop to the park's "Mountain Finder" Lookout for the scavenger map. It features stickers of butterflies, snakes, slugs, and more. The field guide makes the adventure extra special with activity pages for kids investigate the geology and habitats of the park and reflect creatively on their trip.
The result is a memory making experience in one of Portland's second largest park.
NOTE: All maps are made with waterproof paper, and all stickers are made with waterproof vinyl. Available with one or two sets of stickers.
