Mount Talbert is a volcanic cinder cone in Clackamas County, Oregon. It is part of the Boring Lava Field,[3] a zone of ancient volcanic activity in the area around Portland. Its summit rises to an elevation of 740+ feet (226+ m).

The butte remains undeveloped and is the location of a nature park of the same name which is managed by North Clackamas Parks & Recreation District. The park has several interlinked hiking trails, including Park Loop, Summit and West Ridge Trail, along which there are several interpretive signs about the area's natural resources.
