For Hike 14 of the #52HikeChallenge, Phillip was out climbing in the Sierra's, so I decided to hike Stairstep trail in Aliso and Wood Canyons Wilderness Park. (You will find that we did a lot of our hikes at this park, as it is very close and convenient to us. This park alone has more than 30 miles of trails.)
The trail is multi-use, so it's best to be on alert for mountain bikers. However, if you want a butt tightening, calf burning trail, this is it!!
P.s. As of last time we checked in late 2014 this trail was closed for maintenance.
