Hills in Parks - Conditioning Walk - Hamlin Park (Shoreline)

Now that the days are getting longer we can get off the streets and hit some trails. Each week in March we will visit a park that has some hills and do some interval training. These walks are aimed to get us breathing hard and our hearts a pumpin' for a short duration and then recovery before doing it all again. We may not all climb at the same speed but the hills are not long and we will wait at the top before heading along as a group. For a more leisurely walk, join us on Wednesday evenings.

Because it is March and weather is unpredictable always check this site before hand for any last minute changes. Heavy winds will move the walks out of the forested areas of the parks to safer neighborhoods. Wear shoes appropriate for muddy trails. I may don my backpack for added weight and intensity.

Hamlin Park:

This 80-acre park is a forested haven for birds and people within a neighborhood of single-family homes. Bring your kids to walk the trails, listen for woodpeckers, climb the play structures, and watch a young batter hit a homer at the ballfield. In the last few years, park trails have been spiffed up with wooden bridges over mucky areas and new steps for climbing the steeper grades. South Woods, a 16-acre area south of Shorecrest High School, was recently added to the park system.

    We will meet in the first parking lot off of the 15th Ave Entrance. If you get to the playground/baseball field you have gone a little too far, but you should still be able to see us. I drive a blue, hyundai tucson so look for that. See you all later. Please check this site before leaving in case of weather changes, but I think this is a go.
