There's nothing to do at Rocky Butte except gawp at the view. That said, it's quite a view, and there's an interesting hike up alongside the bluff if you want to make a trip out of it. 2 hours of fun if you do the hike as well.
Dawn 'til dusk. Probably.
Very close to The Grotto and not a lot else. IKEA?
Powell Butte also offers great views of Mt Hood, though it lacks the full panorama.
