Ascent Trip Report

Very steep up this side of the urban park. The other side starts higher up and has reasonable trails. The lower side access is straight up and steep and today was quite muddy. Parked near corner of Jenifer and Rachel on Rachel and accessed through the paved sidewalk at the intersection up a trail called Terrace Hill Loop. The paving ends in what today was a slog of mushy grass and mud but half the way up it became drier and hikeable. This is the least entertaining of all of the hikes in the area and it is over used with locals but.....heck it another place to get exercise and it beats the peakbagging opportunities I have I FL so. What the heck! So I got 8 peaks on my visit and plenty of training in. Nice area SLO.
