|The beginning of the trail at the base of Hilltop Park.|
There is a restroom, since there is a park. The trails leads from the park, through a neighborhood and features historical kiosks/plaques chronicling the beginnings and roots of the city.
You will also find sculptural artwork and plenty of stone benches offering amazing vistas. On a clear day, you can get an almost 360 degree view, from the beach and port, out to the city and skyscrapers.
|The NO stroller trail.|
This particular part of the trail also hosts a sign that specifically states NO strollers. Sorry mommas.
The other part of the trail, that starts at the green gate pictured above does not have stroller restrictions. It features a wider, dirt path, then continues into the neighborhood via street and sidewalk.
|I never tire of this view.|
This is more like a walk than a hike but there are hills. The trail also features some work-out stops with bars and a kiosk of suggested exercises. This is not a challenging course except maybe for the hills and if you attempt it late morning/mid-day during a standard California heat way. Right?
We saw a few tiny lizards--kids always enjoy seeing animals. We've also seen hawks flying above, in the past too.
See you next week. Start the day outside!
