Published:

Illustration by Victoria Fernández

Difficulty Level

Easy, great for beginners in decent shape

Distance

2 miles out and back

Good to Know

Dog Friendly
Free Parking

Where

Park on Adobe Falls Road and take the trail up to the top.

 

Why We Love It

You would never expect to find secluded meadows and brush trails in the heart of these neighborhoods, but there they are. Get away without driving far at all!

 

Where to Refuel

Del’s Hideout (5351 Adobe Falls Road, Del Cerro) is kid friendly, with games and free soft-serve. For adults, there’s a big tap list and a “Ginormous Cinnamon Roll” on the weekend brunch menu.

 

What to Instagram
