Sunrise Park, a look into Portland area's past
Head east on SW Hensley Road from SW 257th Avenue and you will quickly come to a sharp bend in the road. This sharp bend in the road, where Hensley turns into SW 262nd, is the easiest point of entrance to find for Sunrise Park.
While the park is mostly of local interest, on clear days it also offers a beautiful example of what the Portland area once looked like not so long ago, and as the name implies it is particularly spectacular at sunrise.
From here, you can see Mount Hood towering over the forests to the east, showing what the entire Portland area used to look like.
When I last visited this park, it featured a few scattered small trees, and a bark dust jogging trail around the edges.
