The Route:

Boundries: Temple, 21st, Cherry, Skyline, Panarama

Up Hill to Temple/Panarama (We usually go through Discovery Well Park, down the dirt road and up the stairs) Down Temple to 21st St (R) 21st to Stanley (R) and up the hill to Hill St (L) Hill St to Skyline Drive (R) Skyline merges with Panarama then Temple to 21st St (R) 21st Street to Cherry (R) Cherry to Hill St (R) Hill St to St Louis (L) and take the trail at the top left At this point you can walk the dirt trails and find your way to the top but it's hard to describe so I'll avoid that part. At the top of the trail, follow the road (Ocean View Dr) out to Burnett/Skyline Dr. (R) Follow Skyline Dr. up the hill At the top of the hill, cross over to the Hilltop Park and walk around the west side (great view) to the other side. Take the Panarama Dr trail back to (merges with) Temple to 21st (R) 21st to Ohio (R) Ohio to Hill (L) Hill to Skyline (L) Skyline to Dawson Walk around the Hilltop Park again back to Panarama Follow Panarama to the trail down to the dirt road and Discovery Well Park (R at bottom of stairs) To get back to your cars, you there are trails down from the dirt road behind the Discovery Well Park and in the park that lead down to Obispo (through a neighborhood). Or you can take Hill street on the South side of Discovery Well Park.
