Forest Park and Pittock Mansion
9:00am – 11:30am
An idyllic and expansive park, perfect for exploring the damp, fern-filled forests of the Pacific Northwest. One of the largest urban forest reserves in the country. Many entrance points, though we recommend parking at the Upper Macleay Trail Cornell parking lot, and hiking up the Wildwood Trial to Pittock Mansion.
Please Louise for Lunch
12:00 noon – 1:30pm
Swing into Please Louise for lunch. We recommend starting with the Brussels Sprouts with fried goat cheese, sherry gastrique, and pine nuts. Then move into one of their many fine pizzas, including the Wild Mushroom with chanterelles, pancetta, fontina, gorgonzola, sage, and honey, and the Bittersweet with braised radicchio, smoked mozzarella, walnuts, and balsamic reduction.
