Why We Love It

This is a popular spot for hill repeats, either on bike or by foot. There’s plenty of room to run or ride up the hill away from cars.

Where to Refuel

Dine on omelettes or chicken souvlaki and eggs at Troy’s Greek (10450 Friars Road, Mission Valley) or go heartier at Shake Shack with a burger, crinkle fries, and a “concrete” (frozen custard).
