The most famous, counsel Crest offers the best views in all of Portland and maybe even the state. It was home to an amusement park in 1907 and named after the belief that local Native Americans used to hold meetings of the top of the hill. Rides and games were installed as part of a promotional campaign by the Portland Railway Light and Power company with a streetcar that ran up and down back and forth from the park for travelers to visit. The park, however, was shut down in 1929 and the Lewis and Clark Observatory was built providing incredible views of the city below. Today, it's still a popular landmark for tourists, visitors, and locals and is the highest point in Portland in 1073 feet.
