You either love it or hate it but Courtyard to City Park is my favorite climb. It’s a three tier climb and it’s not nearly as tough as Ladera, Mesa or Smokey Valley. You can climb a good amount of elevation just doing intervals on Jester, Lakewood and Courtyard.
After doing these hills on a hot summer day, there is nothing better than jumping into Barton Springs and heading home for a Makers and ginger. Nothing.
