Lake Oswego is known for its gorgeous neighborhoods. And Walking Lakeview-Summit with its Village on the Lake circular loop is the way to see one of the loveliest.
For one thing, Lakeview Summit is almost as secluded, serene, and private as a gated community–but without the gate.
There’s only one road leading in (Summit Drive off Iron Mountain Blvd.) and the same road leading out (Summit Dr. off Village Dr.).
The side streets (no sidewalks, but walkable nonetheless), View Lake Ct., Twin Points Rd., Bay View Ln. and Lily Vie Ct. are well worth their detours.
Homes are fairytale lovely and views are spectacular. (This one above is our newest listing. Check out the details. )
Here’s our online Google Map of this walk. Queue it up on your iPhone, and follow along as you walk.
You may decide to continue along Summit Dr. for the spectacular peek-a-boo views between homes, even though it’s narrow with no sidewalk. Watch for cars (mostly slow moving) if you do.

About 1.5 hours.
Paved sidewalks along the main loop of Village on the Lake, but no sidewalks edging the remaining streets of the larger Lakeview-Summit neighborhood. The speed limit is mostly 20 MPH with primarily resident car traffic. Moderate hills throughout the neighborhood high above the lake.
Moderately easy with rolling hills and some steep, though relatively brief, inclines.
Sturdy, well-fitting running/walking shoes are a must on Portland Metro’s sidewalks, trails, and road shoulders. Walkers beware!
Portland Metro weather can change in a matter of minutes, and it’s not unusual to need several varying levels of warmth and rain coverage on a given walk. Dress in layers and pack a collapsible umbrella and drinking water.
