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

ROUTE #1:
There are 167 steps up the stairs (works the thighs a lot), and then walk down the bike path to catch your breath.
