  • Close to downtown. Makes for nice lunch hike or ride. ( by darryl ivan brown on 2013-10-04 )
  • Steep for a bit, but worth it! ( by darryl ivan brown on 2013-10-04 )
  • "Hill" is a misnomer. This is a good vertical climb out the gate if you park at the softball fields/dog park. Park by Thorpe Park playground to get a more gradual warm-up before tackling the steep, but awesome, grade. Once on top of the mesa you intersect with many trail options, including the Mesa Loop Trail (single-track pictured). ( by Tracy on 2013-08-20 )
