I haven't been to the park in years so, although I was generally familiar with the route, I had no recollection of how bad the hill was. I was quite surprised by the number of trees damaged from the wind storms last year. You read about it in the papers but still it's quite a shock to see.
The hill itself was generally gradual for about a mile as you climb up to Prospect Point.
It's followed by a nice downhill stretch that will be good to make back some of the time lost.
It's not as bad as the hill I ran yesterday but much longer. I think more hill work has to be part of the plan for the next month.
