Actual Hike

From the parking area, go north on trail #288 to Piedra Lisa Park. Go around the east side of the playground next to the dam with a colorful design painted on it and turn RT GRAVEL (0.3 mi). Turn right after crossing the PED BRIDGE (0,5 mi). Go LEFT TO #365 (0.6 mi), then in a short distance turn RT3 (0.7 mi). Hike along the base of the hills, then VEER LEFT (0.9 mi). Pass a couple of GAZEBOs (1.0 mi), then VEER RIGHT (1.0 mi). Just after JCT #410-#365 (1.1 mi), go through the next junction of trails to continue south, then turn LFT3 (1.1 mi). Go steadily uphill, turn LFT4 (1.3 mi), then reach the high point of the hike at LFT5 (1.3 mi). Turn left here, then go back west along a loop, turn LFT6 (1.5 mi), then to the junction of trails and turn left at LFT7 (1.5 mi). In a very short distance, turn RT OLD RD (1.6 mi) at an old 2-track and continue back to PARK.
