If you are new to Heron Haus or to Portland, print this page and bring it with you.
From the Airport:
Take the exit labeled I-205 South/Portland/Salem. Follow I-205 to I-84 West. Follow I-84 West to I-5 North. At the junction of I-84 and I-5 stay in the right two lanes to exit North, then immediately merge left to avoid exiting to the Coliseum. Follow I-5 to the next exit labeled St. Helens/Beaverton/I-405 which puts you onto the Fremont Bridge (with the flags on top). Follow directions below from the Fremont Bridge.
From Washington / Seattle coming south on I-5:
Stay on I-5 south and cross the Columbia River. Take the St Helens / Beaverton Exit. This puts you on the Fremont Bridge. Follow directions below from the Fremont Bridge.
From the Fremont Bridge:
At the top of the Fremont Bridge move into the far right lane. This becomes the directional lane for Northwest Industrial and St. Helens (angling to the right off the bridge). Stay in the far right lane, which becomes the exit lane for Vaughn St. The first light is at 23rd Avenue. Go through that light (still on Vaughn) to the next light, which is at 25th. Turn left on 25th and go across Northwest Portland toward the hills. You will notice that the named streets are in alphabetical order. When you come to the intersection of 25th, Johnson and Westover (a maverick street that winds itself around the hills for about eight blocks), take a sharp right onto Westover and go up the hill half of a block. At this point Westover makes a sharp left turn. Instead of turning left, continue up the Heron Haus driveway, which meets Westover at this point. If you miss the driveway, you will see a rock wall, which begins on the right, immediately after the curve and driveway.
From I-5 coming north / I-405 North:
On I-5 stay to the left as you apporach the junction with I-405. This will put you on I-405 North. Stay to the left; do not get onto US 26. Once past US 26 take the Everett St. exit. Go through the first light at Everett St. to the second light at Glisan. Turn left onto Glisan. At 23rd Avenue, stay to the right because Glisan becomes a two-way street at that point. Continue on Glisan to 24th. Turn right onto 24th. Continue three blocks to a four way stop at Johnson. Turn left onto Johnson. Go one block to a three way stop. Bear right onto Westover and go up the hill for half a block. At this point Westover makes a sharp left turn. Instead of turning left, continue up the Heron Haus driveway, which meets Westover at this point. If you miss the driveway, you will see a rock wall, which begins on the right, immediately after the curve and driveway.
From the Airport (PDX) via Public Transportation:
Public transportation from the airport is via the MAX (Light Rail) Red Line.   (The Red Line schedule can be seen online at http://trimet.org/schedules/maxredline.htm.)   After claiming your baggage, walk to the exit farthest to the right on the street level. There are two ticket vending machines in the terminal building and another two outside on the Max platform at the right end of the building. Tickets may be purchased at these vending machines with cash or with a credit card. Ticket prices are $2.30 or 95 cents for honored citizens (over 65). You can't purchase tickets on board the trains. The Red Line ends at the airport, so there is no question about which direction to take the train.
From Union Station:
We recommend that guests take a taxi from the station. It's about a mile to Heron Haus. There used to be a convenient bus route from there to here, but the routes have changed and the bus no longer stops at the station.
