HIKERS and BACKPACKERS, feel free to bring a pack similar in weight and size to what you would bring on a hike. Really, really good training for your hikes/backpacking trips or just to improve your overall stamina.

Route #1:
There are 167 steps (~40m) up the stairs (works the thighs a lot) and then walk down the bike path to catch our breath.
