Easiest route to get up the hill is to take the tram with your bicycle!
To bike to the tram on the South waterfront you will put the OHSU Center for Health and Healing as your destination. Once you arrive at the top of the tram, the OHSU Farmers Market is just up Sam Jackson Park Road. Look for the pedestrian bridge the crosses the road just above the ER. We are on the north side of the bridge in the OHSU Auditorium Courtyard.
OHSU is an unusual commute yet the Tram makes biking to Portland's highest campus no sweat. Plan your safest, fastest or flattest route.
Walking or running
OHSU connected by unique and scenic paths. IF walking early or late, paths may pass through poorly lit areas. Bring a light source and never assume a person in a vehicle can see you. Consider walking with a friend. Apps such as Companion allow a friend or colleague to virtually walk with you, monitor your progress, or alert them of any concerning activity.
Google Maps now provide turn by turn walking directions, including elevation.
For emergencies, call 911 off campus and call Public Safety on campus at 503-494-4444. Blue emergency phones are located around campus.
Portland offers renowned urban and forest hikes. OHSU campuses are adjacent to several nature parks and greenways.
The 4T Trail signs around town are referring to a local favorite hiking route that incorporates the 4 "T's" of Portland: Trail, Tram, Trolley and Train.
