If you have time, hike up to Pittock Mansion, a French Renaissance-style château that was once occupied by the family of a publisher and businessman Henry Pittock, and has now been turned into a historic house museum open to visitors.
Another popular hiking destination is the so-called 'Witch's Castle' (pictured) – remnants of an abandoned stone house overgrown with moss, used by local students as a Friday night hangout location. The place is steeped in a bit of mystery, and although there is no record of any ties to witchcraft, its original dweller is rumored to have been the first person in Oregon to be sentenced to execution for murder in 1859.
